Bryan Alexander Chapple was driving northbound on K-10 between the interchange at West Sixth Street and Interstate 70 around 4:55 p.m. Sunday. His vehicle, a Ford Ranger, drifted into the southbound lane and sideswiped a Dodge Ram 2500, according to a crash report.


The Ford Ranger came to rest in a ravine in a ditch on the west side of the highway, according to the crash report, and the Dodge Ram came to rest on the right shoulder of the southbound lanes. A third vehicle struck debris from the crash and came to rest on the righthand shoulder of the northbound lanes, according to the report.

Neither the driver nor passenger of the Ram — a 78-year-old man and a 79-year-old woman — was injured, nor was the 54-year-old woman driving the third vehicle, according to the report.

Chapple was taken to Stormont Vail hospital, according to the report. All involved were wearing seat belts, according to the report.
