A serious crash that injured two people occurred earlier this morning Friday July 26, 2019 as reported by Fox 31 Denver.
Speeding a Major Factor
According to the article, the car that caused the accident was travelling “at least 105 miles per hour on E-470 at Chambers Road.” A Colorado State Patrol officer saw the vehicle and attempted to slow down the car by turning on their patrol lights. The vehicle exited E-470 at Dry Creek Road however and hit two cars when the driver failed to yield to other traffic at the intersection. The vehicle also hit an electrical box which cut power to around 1,000 people in the area.
Two individuals were taken to Sky Ridge Medical Center for treatment. The status of their condition is unknown at this time.
The driver and passenger that were in the speeding vehicle escaped the scene on foot. Police are currently looking for the individuals as an investigation gets underway.
