Pedestrian injured, driver cited in Glenwood

Staff Report

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – A 73-year-old New Castle man was hurt Monday evening as he crossed Blake Avenue on his way to work.

Don Shrull almost made it across the street from the Wal-Mart company parking lot when he was hit in the leg at 7:35 p.m.

“He had one foot on the sidewalk when the car hit him,” said Glenwood Springs police chief Terry Wilson.

Shrull suffered a broken hip and was transported to Valley View Hospital, and later taken to Denver for treatment.

Amanda Vallad, 18, of New Castle was driving the car that hit Shrull. “The car was headed toward town and she dropped a CD. She reached for the CD and didn’t see him. Then her passenger screamed and she hit the brakes, but it was too late,” Wilson said. Vallad was cited for careless driving.
