Durango man dies from injuries from rollover

By Jim Haug Herald staff writer

Durango resident Eric Colby, 43, died Saturday at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood after being injured last week in a rollover accident on U.S. Highway 550 north of Durango.

Colby lost control of his 2005 Toyota Tundra on Tuesday near the Glacier Club when he hit a delineator post and overcorrected, according to the Colorado State Patrol. He went off the right side of the road and rolled at least twice. No one else was in the vehicle.

Colby was then airlifted to the Denver-area hospital.

The accident is under investigation by the Colorado State Patrol. Speed, drugs or alcohol are not suspected.
