Fort Collins, CO – Injury Crash on Maple St Causes Delays

Fort Collins, CO (August 2, 2021) – Emergency crews in the Fort Collins area were requested at the scene of an accident that sent at least one person to a local hospital with injuries. At approximately 7 p.m., on August 1, the Fort Collins Police Department, Poudre Fire Authority, and EMS with the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital were requested on-site at a crash on Maple Street.

Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision blocked the 1100 block of Maple Street for over an hour during the evening. The incident prompted the police and firefighters to close off the roadway as they worked to clear the scene and remove the involved vehicles. At least one person was transported via EMS to a local hospital for further care. At this time, investigations surrounding the crash are underway.

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

Car Accidents in Colorado

Being injured in a motor vehicle accident can have a damaging impact on the lives of those involved. In many cases victims are left with life-altering injuries like spinal cord injuries, internal organ damages, traumatic brain injuries, and even the loss of limbs. People who suffer from these and other severe injuries often require extensive medical treatment and have to remain in hospitals for several weeks and go through months of therapy.

Injured parties often face towering medical costs, deal with lost wages, pay for repairs to their vehicles, and deal with long-term care costs after their accidents. These and other financial consequences are not only difficult for injured parties to deal with, but their families as well. When people are harmed in accidents, due to the actions of others, it is imperative that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Colorado as soon as possible to protect their legal rights. In some cases, injured parties may be able to recover compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face from medical expenses, lost wages, long-term care costs, and more. A trusted and aggressive attorney can review the circumstances surrounding your accident to determine the best legal options available for you.
