Officials learned Thursday morning that Scott Carroll, D.O., a hand surgeon from North Platte, died in a car accident near Denver around 9:40 p.m. Wednesday night.

Carroll, who specialized in hand surgery, was originally from Paxton. He was associated at North Platte Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Associates with Mark McKenzie, M.D. and John Hannah, M.D.

Carroll died on Interstate-70 near 20th St., in the Lakewood area of the Denver metro area. The Colorado State Patrol said his westbound 2010 Ford pickup skidded into the guardrail near the median, sailed over it, went airborne and landed on its top.

Carroll was dead when officers arrived.

Speed is listed as one of the factors and ice may have been a factor, the CSP said. No alcohol or drugs were found.

Carroll also began seeing patients in McCook at the Medical Specialists Center in 2008.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Carroll's family and friends," said Jim Ulrich, McCook Community Hospital President and CEO. "Dr. Carroll will truly be missed by all of us."

"He was a wonderful surgeon and a wonderful person," he said. "He was loved by his patients. He will be remembered and appreciated always."
