Correction: Driver misidentified in Tuesday’s accident

CARBONDALE, Colorado ” A story about an accident near Carbondale in Tuesday’s Post Independent incorrectly identified the driver of a semitrailer.

It was actually Mark Phipps, 47, of Virginia, who drove the semitrailer and was cited with careless driving. Ronald Lovell, 46, of Parachute, drove a construction crane and was not cited with any violation.

The Colorado State Patrol said Phipps pulled out in front of the crane Tuesday morning while trying to make a U-turn on Highway 82 and caused the accident.
