A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries in a collision with a dump truck full of manure just before 5 p.m. Tuesday in the 2000 block of South County Road 7 south of Loveland.

The dump truck was a farm vehicle hauling manure for a Rocky Mountain Dairy operation. Only the man driving the motorcycle was hurt after being thrown from his vehicle in the collision, said Trooper Dave McKee with Colorado State Patrol.

The man suffered a severely broken leg, but was alert and able to speak with emergency medical personnel dispatched to transport him, McKee said. Due to the severity of the injury, a full trauma team was activated by Medical Center of the Rockies, according to McKee.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet, McKee said.

He was trailing the dump truck hauling manure, with both vehicles heading northbound on County Road 7. When the truck slowed to make a left turn into a driveway of the dairy farm, the motorcyclist tried to pass the truck on the two-lane road and clipped its left front corner before he was thrown west of the southbound lane into a muddy driveway, McKee said.

The driver of the dump truck was unhurt, and pulled over to the side of the road following the crash. There were multiple witnesses to the crash, McKee said.

Another trooper with Colorado State Patrol was at the hospital trying to ascertain from the motorcyclist whether drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash, McKee said. No official determinations had been made on whether the motorcyclist was impaired or whether speed was a factor at press time.

A press release from the Colorado Department of Transportation announced Tuesday the agency is launching a campaign to promote motorcycle safety in light of a sharp rise in the number of motorcycle crashes on the state’s roads recently.

This year alone, 72 motorcyclists have been killed on Colorado roads, the press release said. Motorcyclist fatalities hit an all-time high of 125 in 2016. While motorcycles account for just 3 percent of registered vehicles on the road, motorcyclists represent over 20 percent of fatalities.

WALKS INTO A BAR… NOT READY TO GO HOME

A guy walks into a bar and asks for a beer. He chugs it, looks into his pocket and asks for another beer. He chugs that beer, looks into his pocket and asks for another.

The man does this a few more times until the bartender asks, “How come you ask for a beer, chug it, then look in your pocket?”

The man says, “Because there is a picture of my wife in my pocket and I’m gonna keep drinking till she looks good enough for me to go home.”

WALKS INTO A BAR… BEARS ON DRUGS

A bear walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a beer. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t give beer to bears in bars.”

The bear replies, “If you don’t give me a beer, I’ll eat that lady over there.”

The bartender says, “Go ahead.”

So the bear eats the lady and asks for a beer. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t give beer to bears on drugs.”

“What do mean,” asks the bear. “I’m not on drugs.”

“Yes, you are, that was the bar bitch you ate.”

Nick Nolte has been taking GHB ‘for four years’

Nick Nolte has been taking GHB 'for four years'

Nick Nolte has been taking the date rape drug GHB for “four years”.

The 76-year-old actor – who starred in ’48 Hours’ alongside Eddie Murphy – was arrested in 2002 for driving under the influence of alcohol and the drug, but he’s now admitted to being a regular user of the narcotic.

The actor said: “I’ve been taking GHB for four years and I’ve never been raped.

Despite checking into rehab, the actor continued drinking on and off until he stopped for good.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, he explained: “Now I can have drink and stop, but I used to fill the gaps between adrenaline rushes with booze and drugs.”

While starring in acclaimed director Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’, the actor was unable to remember a line for the first 10 days.

Recalling the surreal experience, Nick said: “I started so high that I couldn’t remember a line for the first 10 days.

“And Ang came up and said ‘do you think it’s time we string two words together?’ And I said ‘just about’.”

Nick – who has a 31-year-old son called Brawley with his third wife Rebecca Linger and a nine-year-old daughter by his current wife Clytie Lane – also confessed being famous can make people feel lonely.

He shared: “Fame is a parenthesis you live in and when you die they close those parentheses.

“Then you get a real definition of who you were. It’s living under the spotlight. Your mistakes are going to be seen and then they’ll be glorified in not a positive way.

“It’s a lonelier kind of life than I think anonymity is. It also teaches you how much privacy is valued and how much it is really what the citizens of the world would prefer to have rather than constantly being scrutinised by cameras and questions.”

WALKS INTO A BAR… BASEMENT CHALLENGE

Three men walk into a bar. The barman tells them, “If you can sit in my basement for a day, I’ll give you free beer forever.”

The first man walks out after five minutes and says, “It’s impossible, you got a swarm of flies in there.”

So the second man tries his luck, but can’t take more than an hour.

Finally, the third man goes down. When he returns a day later, the others ask him how he did it.

He says, “Easy! I took a dump in one corner and sat in the other corner!”
