A fatal collision on Interstate 270 in Commerce City last Sunday morning, resulted in one fatality and injuries for three others involved.
According to the Commerce City Police Department, the collision occurred between Vasquez Boulevard and I-76 in the eastbound lanes of I-270, on the morning of January 2nd.
Apparently, a vehicle had broken down on the side of I-270 and the three vehicle passengers were waiting outside of the car for help, on the side of the interstate.
A second vehicle went out of control, and crashed into the broken-down vehicle and the three people waiting outside of it.
All three people, and the driver of the second vehicle were rushed to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries, but tragically, one person was later declared deceased.
The police are continuing to investigate, and at this time it is unknown whether the accident was alcohol related or caused by other factors, possibly including inclement weather.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured, deceased, and their families.
