A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
One person was airlifted from the scene of a crash in Fountain Saturday afternoon.
The Fountain fire chief says that person was critically injured.
Six others were taken by ambulance to Penrose and Memorial hospitals with minor to moderate injuries.
The seven crash victims were involved in a t-bone collision early Saturday afternoon on Highway 85/87. The roadway was completely
shut down between Southmoor and Main Street so that the medical helicopter could land.
There is no word at this time on what caused the crash.
