Need help recovering flipped over quad

MODS: I am not sure where to put this. Please move or delete as you see fit.


Need help recovering my wife's overturned 550 near Divide Colorado, west of Colorado Springs and Woodland Park. It is off a 50" trail and I have access to 2 quads with winches. Is anyone in the area that can lend some muscle, perhaps a quad/winch, and some time today? Thanks in advance.

Hopefully someone can help. Was anyone hurt? How far off the trail did the quad roll?

Good luck and hopefully someone will chime in.

Dan, change of plans. I am getting stuff loaded up and should be able to be on my way soon.

For anyone else who might be able to help, send me or DenverDan a PM with your mobile number and we can call you. Dan said the bike is down in a ravine, no water, and might be a bit difficult to extract it. Plan is to meet down in the Divide area around 2pm today.

Extraction turned out well, just took a bit of time as expected. Dan is most likely headed back home or arriving at home about now. Probably a VERY long day for him with minimal sleep but things turned out well. I'll let him explain what happened as it is not my place to explain things.

I am not sure if there are enough cases of beer for that operation. RR definitely made things go much easier for me on Monday. There is a special place in heaven for people like him!!!

Sorry, all for the delayed response. I had to do another extraction today; that was extracting my wife, the driver of the said Grizzly, from the hospital. She suffered a broken scapula (shoulder blade) and a badly mangled right hand with a severed tendon to her thumb. The tendon provides the ability to "stretch" the thumb open; not the "pinching" force. Seeing her immediately after the crash makes me feel grateful she didn't suffer more injuries.

Speaking of grateful, words cannot express my gratitude for RedRocket's selfless assistance with the extraction of the quad on Sunday. I received his call as I was picking up a "backup" quad and trailer to have in case I couldn't drive the crashed quad into the garage of my 5'er. RR's call and subsequent help was the most pleasant surprise I had gotten since the accident. We were able to coordinate hooking up at a perfect time near our staging area. My daughter and her boyfriend pulled the "backup" quad and trailer to the trailhead.


Here's what happened: Sunday at approx. 4:30, My wife hit a tree root or rock on a narrow ledge road and the quad kicked over the ledge. The Grizzly landed on her, but it continued down the hill, so she wasn't trapped under it. I found her next to the unit bloody but coherent, but had no phone service, so after checking her out, I had to leave her to call for help. Rescue arrived at about 7:00 and they drove her out approximately 2 miles on a rescue ATV to the road where the helicopter had landed. The helicopter got her to the hospital about 9:00 PM Sunday.


There's the setup. It is late. I'll give the details of the extraction tomorrow.

Gosh wish I had looked at the forum earlier or would of helped as I could, been on many technical rescues and extractions including ATV accidents that sometimes did not have good outcomes. Being without cell service and having to leave the wife for rescue had to be frightening, one can only imagine the emotions you both felt during and after.


Red Rocket's help is outstanding and a mark of character and citizenship.


Your wife is now on the path of recovery, you also will be on a similar path to take care of yourself now. J

Wow, glad to hear that your wife didn't turn out worse! Give her our regards, and well-wishes for a speedy recovery. And tell her not to skimp on the PT for the tendon re-attachment!

Hey DD Sorry, I wouldn't have made the crack about the beer if I had known you wife was injured.
Hope all is going well for her.

You are right about RR. I've rode with RR a couple times. He is a great person to know and to ride with. He is always concerned for the safety of the members of the group.

Thanks for all of the kind words from everyone but it really is not necessary. I only did what I'm sure all of you would have done given you were in the area and available, just simple human nature. I was glad to help out someone who was in need.

@DenverDan I hope your wife gets better soon and then this will all be behind both of you. We'll need to get out on a proper ride soon!
