About one hour later, police provided more information about the crash on its Facebook page. The agency said a driver attempted to escape from an officer during a traffic stop. Officers discovered the vehicle was stolen out of the city of Denver.
Two of the four people hurt in the crash were inside the stolen vehicle.
“We are asking the public to take alternate routes as there will be heavy police activity in the area with multiple lane closures. No officers were injured,” Parker police said in its Facebook post.
