According to Summit Fire & EMS, four teens were taken to the hospital by emergency personnel after a collision on Colorado Highway 9 on Tuesday, January 31. Three of the teenagers had minor injuries. One of the teenagers was hospitalized for observation purposes solely despite being unharmed.
According to Colorado State Patrol Master Trooper Gary Cutler, the three-car collision happened around 3:50 p.m. when a 17-year-old Frisco female driving a Pontiac G6 lost control of the vehicle while traveling north near Mile Marker 94. The highway section between Summit High School and the Frisco Adventure Park contains mile marker 94. In the car with them were three other teenagers.
The vehicle slid into the median before going airborne into the southbound lane of traffic and colliding with a Jeep Wrangler, Cutler said. A southbound Toyota Tacoma then collided with the Jeep, he said.
The passengers of the Pontiac included a 17-year-old Silverthorne boy who received a serious-bodily-injury classification, a 16-year-old Frisco boy, and a 16-year-old Silverthorne boy, according to State Patrol. Cutler claimed that at least one other youngster had been diagnosed with a major bodily ailment, though he was unsure which one.
Later in the day, he explained that State Patrol distinguishes between “severe injuries” and “serious bodily damage.” According to Cutler, the major bodily injury just implies that the injured person is temporarily unable to utilize body parts that they were able to use before the accident, whereas serious injuries may necessitate an overnight stay in the intensive care unit. However, he explained, a serious bodily injury could be as tiny as a fractured finger or abrasions that rendered a person’s arm difficult to move. He mentioned these only as examples.
The teenagers were transported in two ambulances to St. Anthony Summit Hospital, according to Summit Fire & EMS spokesperson Steve Lipsher. He said the crash occurred in “very slick conditions.” The road was closed for a period of time due to the collision. A 22-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man were involved in the crash, according to Cutler. He did not know which vehicles these people were driving.
Five victims of the accident were treated at St. Anthony Summit Hospital, according to Brent Boyer, a hospital representative. According to Boyer, four of the five patients received treatment and were later released, while the fifth was taken by ambulance to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood. He was unable to elaborate on which patients were discharged or why the fifth was taken to a different facility.
Cutler claimed that the Pontiac’s driver had received a traffic summons but was unsure of its purpose. The accident is still being looked into. According to Cutler, the State Patrol does not think that alcohol or narcotics were used.
