A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
The Summit County coroner says a 22-year-old snowboarder who died at Keystone Ski Resort suffered internal injuries. Preliminary autopsy reports indicate Derrick Lesnick, of Colorado Springs, died Friday from multiple injuries and a lacerated liver.
Lesnick was apparently injured after he went off the second jump at the resort's terrain park Friday. Coroner Joanne Richardson says Lesnick was not wearing a helmet, but he did not sustain any head injuries.
Lesnick is the eighth person to die at Keystone this season.
Vail Resorts spokeswoman Kelly Ladyga says two deaths were related to heart conditions, and two were employees. Lesnick was one of four snowriders who died.
It is the 12th accidental death of a snowrider this season in Colorado.
