Pedestrian airlifted to Denver after Carbondale accident

Jose Alonzo Serrano, age 61, was airlifted to Denver after an accident in Carbondale Tuesday morning.

The pedestrian was walking across Highway 133 when he was hit by a pickup truck. That was at the intersection next to the Carbondale Park and Ride for the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA). The pedestrian was critically injured and only somewhat responsive afterwards.

The Carbondale and Rural Fire Protection District responded to the incident. A representative said afterward that firefighters regularly respond to accidents along the highway and the area near Tuesday’s accident. That stretch of highway has become much more congested in recent years.

It’s not clear how much the expanded Park and Ride has played a role in that increased activity.

After the accident, Serrano was sent to Valley View Hospital and then airlifted to Denver.
