On October 18, a reckless driver caused a six-car pileup on I-25, injuring one adult and one child in the process.
According to reports, a white pickup truck was traveling southbound on I-25 near Mountain Vista early that afternoon. Witnesses say the driver failed to notice that he was approaching a construction zone, so he was traveling full speed when he slammed into the back of an Infinity SUV.
The impact caused a chain reaction that affected six other cars. Onlookers said the SUV was so badly damaged that it looked as though it had been “cut in half.”
The Infinity contained a mother and her infant, both of whom were hospitalized for serious but not life-threatening injuries. At least five other people sustained minor to serious injuries.
The man operating the white pickup truck was also transported to an area hospital. Police are still trying to determine if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
