A serious traffic accident at 61st
and Ward Road
shutdown traffic lanes, and created delays for numerous drivers on
June 13, 2010.
The Arvada Police Department’s Critical
Accident Response Team (CART) was called to the area just after 10:30
a.m. to investigate the accident that involved three vehicles in the
6100 block of Ward Rd.
It’s believed the driver of a Jeep
Liberty, a 60-year-old Arvada man, was traveling southbound on Ward
Road when he crossed into the northbound lanes and side swiped a
Suburban being driven by a 43-year-old Bailey man. The suspect then
crashed head-on into a GMC Terrain in the southbound lane being driven
by a 49-year-old Westminster woman.
The suspect and the female victim were
transported to St. Anthony’s Hospital Central for treatment. Their
injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
Police believe alcohol may have been
involved in the crash.
Charges are pending against the suspect
as the investigation continues.
Traffic on Ward Road was impacted for
approximately three hours while CART investigated the crash.
