Glenwood woman dies in snowmobile crash

A Glenwood Springs woman died in a snowmobile accident early Friday morning at the Oak Meadows subdivision up Four Mile Creek. No one else was injured.

Donna Hunter, 39, and her husband, Tim, who live in the subdivision, decided to give some friends a snowmobile ride back to their home a half mile away, at about 1:30 a.m.

Donna lost control of her snowmobile and crashed on the side of the road. “I think she hit an icy patch,” her husband said. He administered CPR but was unable to save her.

Hunter described his wife as a “semi-experienced” snowmobiler.

The couple were married this past August at their home. Donna, a former pre-school teacher whose previous surname was Smith, worked for Hunter Concrete and had lived in Glenwood Springs for 12 years.

“Our daughters are my big concern now,” Tim said of his two stepdaughters, ages 11 and 14.

An obituary appears on page 3.

The accident is under investigation by the Colorado State Patrol.
