In Colorado, a fatal crash on Jan. 7 shut down Colorado 94 and North Peyton Highway in both directions for over three hours, according to the Colorado State Patrol. This crash took place at around 5:00 p.m., a time better known as rush hour.
One of the most dangerous types of accidents that anyone can get into is an accident at a red light, where one driver runs the light and slams into the side of the other vehicle. The people in that second car do not have much protection, with little more than the car's door standing between them.
The recent snows have made the roads dangerous in Colorado, and photos of a police car that was crushed between a pair of semi-trucks show that car covered in snow. The officer who was driving it, a member of the Colorado State Police Department, is currently recovering from injuries that were suffered.
