Woman who drove onto wet concrete arrested

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – One of the three people who drove onto wet concrete on Grand Avenue Saturday was arrested on charges of driving while ability impaired, driving under restraint and careless driving. According to a police report, the woman, Julia L. Jundt, 46, of Glenwood Springs was driving home from a restaurant with her husband at 6:55 p.m. when she drove through the orange cones at the intersection of 14th Street and Grand Avenue. The cones marked the edge of the construction zone. The vehicle ended up in freshly laid concrete. In all, the three sets of tire tracks resulted in more than $13,000 in damage. “As of this time, we’re going to bill their insurance companies,” said Joe Schwartz, Grand Avenue Paving Project supervisor for Concrete Works of Colorado. Jundt’s vehicle caused about $5,500 worth of damage. In another incident, which happened at 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, David Caniff, 35, of Carbondale drove through a patch of concrete at the intersection of 13th and Grand. Schwartz said Caniff’s accident caused $6,400 in damage. Glenwood Springs police chief Terry Wilson read from a police report that explained how Caniff found himself mired in the concrete mess. “He said he thought he could just fit his vehicle through two orange cones and squeak on through. So he did it and that’s when he realized there was a problem,” Wilson said. Caniff wasn’t charged in the incident.In the third incident, the driver who ran over the wet concrete was never found. Schwartz said that was the least costly of the three incidents, costing about $1,800 to fix.Contact Greg Massé: 945-8515, ext. 511gmasse@postindependent.com
