Head-on sends two to Valley View

Glenwood Springs police ticketed a New Castle driver after she apparently blacked out Tuesday on Grand Avenue and crashed into an oncoming car.

Daisy Wilson, 60, was driving south on Grand Avenue near the 11th Street intersection at 11:20 a.m. when she briefly lost consciousness, said Glenwood Springs police chief Terry Wilson, no relation.

About 250 feet south of 11th Street, Daisy Wilson’s 1990 Honda Accord drifted into the northbound lanes, where it collided head-on with a 1996 Volkswagen driven by a 16-year-old Glenwood Springs girl.

Another local girl, also 16, was riding in the Volkswagen.

Terry Wilson said Daisy Wilson and one of the girls were taken to Valley View Hospital. The teen was treated and released, but Daisy Wilson remained at the hospital Tuesday afternoon for treatment. She was alert and able to recollect her experience in an interview with a police officer, Terry Wilson reported.

The second teen was checked for injuries by medics at the scene of the accident.

Police cited Daisy Wilson for driving on the wrong side of the road.
