Woody Creek man allegedly steals and crashes truck
WOODY CREEK, Colorado ” The Colorado State Patrol arrested Sean Roush, 23, alleging that in the early morning on Saturday he stole, and then crashed, an old pickup truck on Upper River Road in Woody Creek.
Roush drove little more than a mile west of the Woody Creek Tavern before he went off the road, according to Trooper Rob Case of the state patrol. Pitkin County deputies first arrived on scene at 3:20 a.m. and found the vehicle, a 1973 Ford pickup, on its side leaking gas, Case said.
Roush was nearby in the yard of the Woody Creek home where he is living. He sustained cuts and bruises and was taken to Aspen Valley Hos-pital, then the Pitkin County jail, according to Case.
In court on Monday in Aspen, with his face scraped and bruised, Roush was advised of the charges.
He faces felony first-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft, as well as misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving without a license.
Senior District Court Judge Frank Plaut released Roush on a personal recognizance bond of $5,000 until his next court appearance.
