A car crash at Baseline and County Line Road injured two people, according to the Denver Post. Apparently, the driver of a Ford Ranger made a left turn onto County Line Road on a red light, and a Honda SUV on Baseline was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision. The drivers of both vehicles were injured, and transported to Exempla Good Samaritan. The driver of the Honda has a compound leg fracture, but neither driver had life-threatening injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle. The driver of the Ranger was cited in the crash. Police believe that another accident nearby may have been caused by a truck driver looking at this accident scene while driving by.
Every year, there are more than 5 million car crashes across the United States. Fortunately, in most of them, no one is injured, there is only property damage.
