While driving an SUV on Sunnywood Ave (a dirt street) just a mile from his house Mayor Dave Turley had an accident yesterday. Turley hit a driveway culvert in the ditch, then popped out a cluster of mailboxes, crossed the road, and went headfirst into another deep ditch on the other side of the road.
Ambulance took Turley to Pikes Peak Regional Hospital & Surgery Center. The only serious injury was the broken wrist. Surgery was done on the wrist, putting the bone back in place and using a metal plate and screws to hold it together. As we learn more we will post.
