Some French tourists got a quick lesson in traffic laws in Green River this week. A Green River police officer attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle with Colorado license plates for speeding. The officer activated the emergency lights and siren, but the vehicle refused to pull over and stop. The car then drover up South Hill. The officer continued to follow with the lights and siren out to Blacks Fork's Bridge. Finally, the vehicle stopped on the bridge. The occupants, who were from France, did not hear the siren, but did see the emergency lights. They were not aware the lights meant to pull over.
The body of James "Randy" Udall has been found. He is the brother of Colorado Senator Mark Udall. Sen. Mark Udall's office released a statement from the family Wednesday night saying the 61-year-old's body had been found. The family says that while an autopsy is forthcoming, it appears he died of natural causes. An aerial search team spotted Udall's body in open terrain. He was found lying on his side. The family says Udall died doing what he loved most: hiking his favorite mountain range in the world. He had indicated to his wife he planned to head for the scenic Titcomb Basin. His family says it appears he was on the obscure, off-trail route that he had proposed to his family.
