SAGUACHE COUNTY - The Alamosa Regional Communications Center received a 911 call at approximately 8:15 a.m. Aug. 1 concerning a vehicle and injured occupant that was located by a passerby. The crash was determined to have occurred at approximately 5 p.m. the previous day on Saguache County Road 14NN, 1.2 miles east of Saguache County Road 17FF.

An Air Life Helicopter assisted in locating the crash scene. Upon finding the scene, the helicopter transported the driver to a hospital out of the area for treatment.
