Colorado Springs, CO (September 1, 2021) – An automobile accident in the Colorado Springs area sent at least one person to a local hospital with injuries. At approximately 4:04 p.m., on August 31, the Colorado Springs Police Department was notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of a traffic-related incident on East Platte Avenue.

Reports from CSPD show that a collision blocked the westbound side of East Platte Avenue in the area just east of Chelton Road. The incident caused some disruptions in traffic throughout the area as crews worked to clear the roadway and allow thru-traffic. Emergency medical services tended to injured victims at the scene before transporting those in need of further care to area hospitals. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Colorado Springs Police Department. 

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