Denver, CO (August 31, 2021) – One person was left injured as a result of a pedestrian accident in the Denver area early Monday evening. At around 4:15 p.m., on August 30, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on West Mississippi Avenue.

Reports from the Denver Police Department show that a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle on West Mississippi Avenue at the intersection of South Raritan Street. The incident caused some disruptions in traffic as crews closed off both roadways as they worked to clear the scene. EMS tended to injured victims briefly on-site before transporting those in need of further care to area hospitals. At this time, the incident remains under investigation. 

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

Motor vehicle accidents of any kind can have an overwhelming impact on the lives of victims and their families. Pedestrian accidents are more likely to be life-changing for everyone involved. Pedestrian accidents across the state of Colorado leave hundreds of people with life-altering injuries each year. Given the fact that pedestrians lack adequate protection during collisions means they are likely to suffer catastrophic injuries that require emergency medical assistance. Victims involved in these accidents are often hospitalized for weeks and have to go through months of therapy. Thousands of injured pedestrians never fully recover.
