COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — One person was killed and another was transported to a hospital after a head-on crash northwest of Denver International Airport on Wednesday morning, the Colorado State Patrol said.
The accident happened just after 6 a.m. near East 120th Avenue and Picadilly Road.
SkyFOX flew near the area, but dense fog in the area showed low visibility, and it was unable to get over the scene of the accident. It’s not known if the fog played a role in the accident, but investigators will look into that as a possibility.
