A sixteen-year-old Calhan teenager remained in critical condition Wednesday night after he was thrown from his car in a Tuesday afternoon crash, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Around 1:26 p.m. Tuesday Keyten Gilbert was thrown from his 2002 Isuzu Rodeo when the car rollover outside of Calhan.
Gilbert was driving southbound on Scott Road just east of Soapweed Road in Calhan when his car drifted left off the road, then rolled two times, said Sgt. Justin Mullins.
Gilbert was found near his car, and was taken to Memorial Hospital in a Flight for Life helicopter.
He was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, and state troopers suspect that reckless driving and Gilbert’s inexperience as a driver contributed to the crash.
