A woman was killed and three others were seriously injured in a head-on Colorado Car Crash earlier this week. Sources say the collision was the second fatal accident of its kind in the area within the last two months.
According to a story from Colorado’s 9 News, the incident occurred on Wednesday inside of a construction zone along Interstate-70, near the town of Glenwood Springs. A spokesperson with the Colorado State Patrol explained that a tractor-trailer and a car slammed into one another when one of the vehicles traveled the wrong direction on the highway. The driver died at the scene, while two adults and a child sustained serious injuries. Paramedics took the victims to a local trauma center to receive care for their wounds.
This wasn’t the first construction zone crash in the region lately. In April, another head-on collision between a big rig and a car occurred in a construction zone approximately two miles from the site of the most recent collision. A test result showed the driver of the car involved had a blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
The Denver Injury Attorneys with McDivitt Law Firm points out that with Memorial Day weekend beginning today, many may be tempted to drink and drive. The firm asks citizens to refrain from getting behind the wheel if they have consumed any amount of alcohol.
