DLM5334 In May of this year a jury awarded Andy Blood nearly $40 million in a lawsuit he filed against Qwest after he was paralyzed in a work related accident at this location near the corner of West 58th Avenue and Pecos Street in Adams County involving a telephone pole owned by the company on June 29, 2004. Blood was an apprentice lineman for Xcel Energy and was working at the top of a pole when it collapsed and plunged him 25 feet to the ground causing major spinal injuries. In the lawsuit Blood and his attorney William Keating claimed Qwest was to blame because it had failed to inspect and repair the rotting pole. Photo taken Thurs., Aug. 2, 2007. The pole directly behind him is the one that replaced the pole that fell and injured him.(DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Andy Blood (cq) **William Keating (rocky)
