Security, CO – Injury Accident Reported at S Highway 85 near S Academy Blvd

Security, CO (July 15, 2021) – Emergency crews were requested at the scene of a traffic-related incident on Thursday afternoon in the Security area that ended in injuries. At around 1:48 p.m., on July 15, calls for assistance came in regarding a crash on South Highway 85.

Reports from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office indicate that a collision between vehicles blocked South Highway 85 at the intersection of South Academy Boulevard. The incident prompted the Sheriff’s Office and firefighters to close off the roadway as they worked to remove vehicles and debris from the scene. At least one person was injured in the accident. EMS tended to injured victims at the scene before transporting 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 day, people throughout the state of Colorado are hospitalized with injuries from car crashes. Many motor vehicle accidents are caused by negligent and reckless drivers who fail to maintain control over their vehicles. In many cases, people are hurt in crashes due to drivers who are intoxicated, distracted, or recklessly operating their vehicles. Countless people are left permanently disabled due to their injuries and unable to work for the rest of their lives.
