Woman Says Vampire In Road Caused Crash

Fruita Driver Says She Put Car In Reverse After Seeing Vampire

A Fruita woman who crashed her car into a canal Sunday night blamed a vampire for the accident.

The woman was driving on a dirt road near Fruita about 11 p.m., when she said she spotted a vampire in the middle of the road and put her car in reverse.

When troopers arrived, they found the woman's car in the canal but could not find the vampire.

The woman was not injured in the crash. Troopers do not think drugs or alcohol were a factor, but said the woman may not have taken certain medications that day.

She was driven home by her husband.
