When driving on Interstate 25 on the south side of Denver last month, over 100 drivers found themselves involved in one of the largest auto accident pileups the region has ever seen.
On March 1, 104 vehicles sat in a mess of mashed metal on I-25, with one person dead and 30 others in the hospital.
It took days to clean up the wreck before the Loveland Pass could be reopened. Now, the interstate is finally moving again.
While investigators haven’t officially disclosed the cause of the wreck, the conditions were snowy at the time of the accident. Cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and semis all became involved in the crash. Some witnesses and those involved in the crash told The Denver Post that commuters were traveling too fast for the wintery conditions and could not stop or avoid impact.
The Denver Health Medical Center reported on Twitter that 14 people were taken to Denver Health, four to St. Anthony Hospital, and 12 to Swedish Medical Center following the accident.
As Colorado Springs, Colorado, auto accident injury attorneys, this is the largest crash we’ve ever seen in the region. Even a month after the pileup, there are sure to be many victims still suffering from injuries that will last long past this crash. Our condolences go out to the family of the lone fatality.
