Fort Collins, CO – Injuries Reported in Crash a W Horsetooth Rd & Windmill Dr

Fort Collins, CO (July 23, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in the Fort Collins area sent at least one person to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries on Tuesday evening. At around 5:31 p.m., on July 20, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on West Horsetooth Road.

Reports from local authorities show that a crash between vehicles blocked West Horsetooth Road near the intersection of Windmill Drive. The incident prompted crews to remain on-site for nearly 2.5-hours as they worked to clear the scene. One EMS unit responded to the scene to treat victims and transport those in need of further care to area hospitals. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Colorado

Every year, motor vehicle crashes negatively impact the lives of victims and families across the state of Colorado. Hundreds of victims lose their lives in these crashes while thousands more are hospitalized with debilitating injuries. Victims who are left with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even broken bones often have a challenging time moving forward. Not only are they forced to deal with the mental and physical consequences, but the financial burdens are often overwhelming, as well. Although most drivers are careful as they travel throughout Colorado, we see an enormous amount of people hospitalized with injuries from accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers.  Colorado drivers often enter roadways while impaired, distracted, or speeding. These and other acts of negligence can harm victims immensely.

When people sustain injuries in accidents, due to the negligent actions of others, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Colorado as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
