Valley lawyer still in critical condition after crash

Matt Zalaznick

Post has been in critical condition since the one-motorcycle crash, which occurred around 11 p.m. as he was entering Interstate 70 in Wolcott.

Post, 53, has been around the valley since the late ’60s and moved here permanently in 1978. He has been the most visible partner in the expansive Village at Avon shopping and residential complex now under construction on the east side of Avon.

Coworker Shane Bohart described Post as deeply committed, hard-working and very bright.

“He’s an avid Harley Davidson rider and he loved to be out on his bike to relieve the stress and pressure of his job,” Bohart said. “We all pray and wish he’s able to recover from this accident.”

The first phase of the complex is expected to begin opening in the summer of 2003, when The Home Depot opens. A Wal-Mart and an I-70 interchange are expected to open that fall.

The village –thought to be the largest development of its kind on the Western Slope –also comprises 2,400 homes that will be built over the next 20 years.

The Village at Avon is being built by a group that includes Traer Creek LLC, Catellus Development Co. and landowner Magnus Lindholm.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, Post had just driven onto I-70 when his motorcycle careened across the interstate and flipped over in the median.

State Trooper Matt Drymon, who investigated the accident, said it was hard to tell what caused the crash.

“I didn’t see anything and the gentleman that was behind him didn’t see anything either,” Drymon said. “He just basically did a 45-degree angle from the on-ramp and went across the left lane and into the median.”
