A three car collision in Lakewood was apparently caused by one driver running a red light, according to CBS Denver. Witnesses say that an SUV ran the red light at Colfax and Pierce, crashing into another vehicle in the intersection. The second vehicle rolled, crashing into yet another car. The vehicle that rolled was driven by a young woman who lost consciousness. A witness saw that her head was in between the frame of her car and the ground, and ran over to help. She held the driver’s head out of danger while others tried to prevent the vehicle from rolling farther. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in what could easily have been a tragic accident.
