Pueblo, CO – One Injured in Two-Car Crash on N Queens Ave
Pueblo, CO (July 18, 2020) – A collision involving two vehicles on Friday afternoon left one person seriously injured. At approximately 12:30 p.m., the deputies from Pueblo County responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on North Queens Avenue.
Reports from local news sources show that a Jaguar collided with a Chrysler sedan on North Queens Avenue at the intersection with East Fourth Street. The impact of the crash caused the Chrysler to spin out and crash into a pole. The driver of the Jaguar initially fled from the scene of the crash on foot without checking on the condition of the second driver.
The driver of the Chrysler sustained serious injuries in the accident. The injured victim was rushed to a local hospital for treatment. Authorities believe that drugs or alcohol may have played a role in this collision. The 19-year-old driver of the Jaguar was subsequently arrested and charged with a DUI, failing to remain at the scene of the accident, failing to notify the police, vehicular assault, and reckless driving. At this time, emergency crews continue to investigate the accident.
Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
