A two-car crash about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of U.S. Highway 160 and County Road 501 in Bayfield sent one person to the hospital.

Upper Pine River Fire District Chief Bruce Evans said his agency extricated one person, who was transported in stable condition to Mercy Regional Medical Center. Another person refused transport.

The Bayfield town marshal has asked the Colorado State Patrol to handle the crash.

Its our second accident there this week, Evans said. Its the one stoplight in the area, and we get people going high speeds.
