Lakewood, CO (September 3, 2021) – At least one person was transported to a local hospital with injuries following a motor vehicle accident on Thursday in the Lakewood area. Just before 2 p.m., on September 2, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Kipling Street.

Reports from the West Metro Fire Rescue indicate that a collision between vehicles blocked Kipling Street in the area of West Colfax Avenue. The incident prompted emergency crews to close off the roadway as they worked for over 30-minutes to clear the scene. One EMS unit responded to the site of the accident to render aid to victims and transport 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.

Yes, it is true that the majority of collisions and with minor injuries and only disruptions to the days of those involved. However, we continue to see thousands of people harmed in crashes and left with injuries that require emergency medical care. 

Victims who suffered broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and internal organ damage are often rushed to area hospitals where they have to undergo emergency surgery. Following surgery, many victims have to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks.

The unfortunate truth is that these treatments come at a significant cost and with no promise of a full recovery.
