01/03/15 – Denver, CO: A Horrific Four-Car crash today has claimed the lives of 2 people and injured 6 others this afternoon.  The crash which occurred at the intersection on S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Mexico Avenue (just North of I-25) occurred around 2:20 PM on this date.   Denver Police state that just prior to the fatal crash, members of the Denver Fire Department had responded to a report of a man slumped over the wheel of a car at S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Evans Ave.  When contacted by the firefighters, the man reportedly drove away from that location.  Moments later that man was involved in the severe 4-car crash several blocks north at S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Mexico Ave.  The crash injured 6 and killed 2.  One person was pronounced dead at the crash scene.  A total of 7 people were transported to local hospitals including the driver of the car from the original slumping-man scene.  His condition is unknown.  4 of those transported were reportedly in serious condition and 1 person who was transported died at a local hospital.  The crash looked like a bomb had gone off with debris scattered everywhere.  Dozens of spectators lined Colorado Blvd. to observe and photograph the severe crash.  Denver Police accident investigators kept Colorado Blvd. closed for several hours while they investigated the fatal accident.  Shane Anthony reporting: ColoradoNews1.com / AuroraNews1.com
