WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — Three people were taken to the hospital after an accident that involved multiple cars at 38th Avenue and Kipling Street in Wheat Ridge Wednesday morning.

At 8:12 a.m. Wednesday, the Wheat Ridge Police Department tweeted that a six-vehicle crash had been reported at the intersection of 38th Avenue and Kipling Street.

Police asked motorists to avoid the area while they investigated and cleaned up the accident.

Witnesses told FOX31 Denver’s Joshua Hans that a white truck ran a red light, prompting the multi-car collision.

Three individuals were transported to a nearby hospital, two via ambulance and one was driven to the hospital by her husband, Hans said — one victim had to be cut out of a minivan.

Hans reported that a few of the victims might have broken bones, but none appeared to have life-threatening injuries.

Police reopened the intersection shortly after 9:30 a.m.

    I was in that exact spot yesterday at that exact time. I saw a hideous driver cutting in and out of traffic, tailgating, with the passenger sitting in the window flipping everyone the bird. I feel very lucky. I don’t suppose society would be lucky enough for this same vehicle to be involved, not wishing that on any of the victims.

    I work in the restaurant at the corner where this happened. The gentleman driving the white truck was an elderly man who may have had a medical issue. I am just happy that no one died. People do need to be more aware and careful. We have many accidents at this intersection. It is sad to see.

  • Never again

    I’m also glad no one was killed. Sending up prayers for the elderly gentleman & the other injured people.

      Thank you for your prayers! The teenager in the minivan is doing well & is out of the hospital.
