Monument, CO (August 8, 2021) – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Monument area that sent an undisclosed number of people to area hospitals with injuries. At around 6:13 p.m., on August 6, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on Fairplay Drive.

Reports from authorities show that a collision between vehicles blocked Fairplay Drive at the intersection of West Highway 105. The incident prompted emergency crews to close off the roadway for an extended time as they worked to clear the scene. At least one person was rendered aid for injuries at the scene before being transported to a local hospital for further care. 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

No one can predict that they will be more involved in a car accident. Conversely, it is nearly impossible to predict the outcome. Every day car accidents across the state of Colorado sent countless people to local hospitals with injuries. Although many accidents result in only minor injuries to simply disrupt their days, thousands of people are hospitalized each year with severe injuries that require emergency surgery and ongoing medical care. Countless victims are left permanently disabled due to their injuries and unable to work for the rest of their lives. The inability to predict how your life is going to be impacted by a car accident just makes dealing with the circumstances even more challenging.

Even though most drivers are careful, we continue to see countless innocent victims hurt every year due to the negligence of other drivers.
