    Wow! I am sure glad this article is of no value. 8 hours later and no update, way to go Web Staff.

    Well at least they posted something, nothing was on at all on 4, 7 or 9 news not even a article but we got information on lighting on California that was of no use to us but we can’t even be told about a 3 hour closer on our own main highway that had over a 3 mile stretch of interstate closed, not to mention 3 departments involved State, Thornton, Westminster and Northglenn. Also over a 5 mile back up North of 136th Ave and I-25!

    Still no update? This had traffic backed up for hours on I25 and 120th and were not getting any info on it…

    One minor (passenger) thrown from the car and killed instantly. The driver (18) in a coma, airlifted. Both from IL. Trying to find updates but nothing, anywhere. Ridiculous.

      This was a motorcycle accident, and there was nobody ejected from a car. Where are you getting this information?

        This is the information we’ve been looking for. Sorry for the confusion, but thank goodness for some good people in CO. Apparently the story was on a local channel and support poured in to the family in the form of food, lodging, and even laundry washing. Someone had the right information, somewhere, when it mattered. (And Coalton had his respirator and chest tubes taken out today.)

        Ninja Mom, the link you provided below refer to entirely different accidents. You’re posting on the wrong article/webpage. This report is for an accident on I-25 and 120th ave. The page you provided makes no mention of it anywhere.

      • Ninja Mom

        I realize that, thanks. Since you require explanation: the article I’m posting under (you know, here, today) doesn’t contain any details except where. We didn’t know where Coalton’s accident occurred and this is only one that didn’t specifically say “motorcycle.” I already corrected myself by linking to the correct article. Point being that this one had no real details or updates. No one saw fit to put an article online about the incident I was searching for until a couple days ago. We can’t turn on any CO local news from the Midwest. We didn’t want to bother the family about details when they were waiting for him to pull through the night. “Where did I get my information?” Now you know.

        Someone below understood the confusion. I hope you can wrap your mind around it. Thank you for your diligence though. Internet comment sections wouldn’t be the same without people entirely misunderstanding each other.

        Understood Ninja Mom…. But for those of use who ARE waiting for updates on THIS accident, you keep providing information repeatedly that doesn’t pertain to it. We get email notifications every time you post something. First, saying people died, and second when you provided a link for whatever reason to. Nobody asked you to provide the link for what you were REALLY looking for. They wanted to know where you were getting information about THIS accident. Why you keep posting info on this thread now that you are completely aware it isn’t referring to the one you involved with, I have no idea. More importantly, why not delete your post the moment you found what you were looking for and realized this was the wrong accident. Do you give ANY thought to those that may be wanting to know about THIS accident, only to read that someone is reporting 2 people died. Do you even care what that kind of misinformation might emotionally put someone through if they were to read your initial post and think it applied to THIS accident? What kind of panic that might put someone in, given the people in THIS accident might still be in critical condition?

        And you’re quite selfish for purposely leaving inaccurate information (your original post) on this page now that you KNOW the deaths you were referring to have NOTHING to do with the accidents reported on THIS page. Go ahead and keep the post up though, purely out of spite I’m sure. It’s just sad that not only did the news team for this channel drop the ball on updates, we have a post like yours still present, knowingly pushing out 100% incorrect information on a very serious topic. I just wish that you could think back to the moment you heard of the accident that affected you…. And think how you would have felt if the first update you came across said the ol’ Coalton was dead. Only to find out after further research that was completely untrue. Why you would leave that original post up stating that is beyond me.

    Since there have not been any updates to date I can understand the confusion. This brings up the question to KDVR news “WHY”? Not important enough? Someone dropped the ball and NOONE even noticed. As far as I know, ‘follow-up’ is as important in reporting news as in Police investigations. SLOPPY work WEB STAFF!

    In regards to this story, the KDVR web Staff dropped the ball big time and don’t even have the guts to admit it. Sorry KDVR but an ace is an ace and a diamond is forever

    I have a feeling a lot of things are beyond you. Like the term, “Non Sequitur.”

    “I, Anon, am offended, so must be the rest of the internet. I shall make an argument of personal astonishment. Then I shall win the internet. Hooray for me!”

    Meanwhile, sanity wins the day and everyone else comprehends the initial confusion and moves on instead of accusing a complete stranger of being spiteful.

    P.S. Ad Hominem: you are a troll.

      First you report that someone is dead. That was your initial mistake in not knowing this was the incorrect webpage. One could easily argue that it was a bit of poor judgement to offer details about someone dying before knowing you were 100% on the right page, but that’s another topic entirely. Either way, you were in the know after that. But then, once realizing you’re on the wrong page, you still continue to provide a link that has nothing to due with the accident on 120th. You then you give an update as to Coalton’s status. What I don’t think you understand is, nobody who reads THIS article cares about Coalton or his accident. There are plenty of articles available referring to HIS accident, and I’m sure many are wanting to know the details of his accident, and his chest tube status. But none are on THIS page. I know that for a fact for one simple reason…. THIS page isn’t about Coalton. Why provide the link to the details you were REALLY looking for? Why give an update status on Coalton? Did someone write you and state “Hey, came to this site looking for details on the 120th accident, but now I’d really like details about this Coalton accident instead!”.
      Your initial error may have been cleared up in your mind as well as mine (and the few others that may have decided to read all these comments), but I feel your selfishness is blinding you to the fact that THIS page, and the comments within will be active (potentially) forever. Meaning everyone NEW coming to it will be given incorrect information BY YOU. So why not delete your original post, and prevent the future confusion of EVERYONE new reading up on this article? The internet is already FILLED with bs and bogus information at nearly every click. Why knowingly add to that…. on a NEWS page of all things? Delete your original post!

      I’m familiar enough with the term “Non Sequitur” to know that it does not in any way apply to MY comments. ALL of mine have been on the topic of your misinformation. You, posting 3 updates about an accident 100 miles away from the one mentioned in the title of this page, is the only thing Non Sequitur that I can find.

    Not knowing you, I do know two things about you for certain. 1, You don’t care about anyone outside your click. Basically taking the “if they don’t care about you, you don’t care about them” stance. You probably go to church and do small acts of charity as long as it isn’t TOO much work, and you probably think that’s enough to buy your way into heaven.
    2nd thing I know, is that you always have to get the last word in. Even if the other party doesn’t hear it.

    So feel free (not like you had any other choice in the matter since this compulsion is probably boarding on an undiagnosed mental condition) to get the last word in. I won’t be reading it, nor will I be posting any more on this article. I wish your buddy Coalton the best of recoveries, and if I happen upon an actual article someday referring to HIS accident, I will be sure to say that to him there, too. I’d post my best wishes to him here, but I have this little voice in my head that I have nicknamed “Common Sense” that’s saying, “Why would you post a comment to, or details about Coalton, in an article that has NOTHING to do with him?”. Guess I’m just silly like that for listening to it.

    Enjoy your last word, Ninja Mom (aka my fellow Internet troll)

    • Ninja Mom

      It’s spelled “clique,” and the term is “bordering on.” I only read every 10th or 20th word, but your inane rants are telling of your ignorance and social ineptitude.

      But your anger is delicious . . . and I’ll pass on your well-wishes to my daughter’s cousin.
