Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The treatment center where a teenager died earlier this week revamped its procedures four years ago after restraining injuries drew the attention of state human services workers.
Fifteen-year-old Orlena Parker stopped breathing Monday while
being restrained by six women and a man at the Devereux Cleo
Wallace Center. Officials said Parker, who weighed 270 pounds,
charged a staff member.
Colorado Department of Human Services officials questioned Cleo
Wallace's restraint practices in 1993 after a boy died at the
company's Westminster center, one of two centers it runs.
The department investigated the Colorado Springs facility in
1999 after 32 physical restraints were reported in one month and a
boy suffered a cracked vertebra while being restrained.
