[05-07-24] Suspect Still on the Run After Series of Crashes, Running From Law Enforcement in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A suspect is still on the run after a series of crashes in Colorado Springs.

Around 7:45 p.m. Monday, the Colorado State Patrol attempted a traffic stop at I-25 and southbound Fillmore in Colorado Springs. The driver reportedly eluded troopers, who did not pursue the driver. CSPD says the vehicle continued through the off-ramp, crossed eastbound lanes of traffic, continued into the westbound traffic lanes, hitting multiple vehicles. The driver then reportedly hit the curb, an overhead light, and rolled multiple times, before coming to rest in the southbound on-ramp to I-25.

The driver then ran from the scene. One driver, reportedly hit by the suspect vehicle, was taken to the hospital.

Police have not released any suspect information Tuesday morning. The area was closed for several hours during the investigation.

We will update this article as we learn more.

CAR ACCIDENT STATISTICS

Car accidents happen all too often in the United States. According to the U.S. Transportation Department, the number of traffic deaths nationwide surged in the first nine months of 2021 to 31,720. The number was 12 percent higher than the same period in 2020 and the highest nine-month figure since 2006.

The bustling streets of Colorado Springs are a hotbed for possible car accidents. Arterials such as Colfax Avenue and Federal Boulevard are some of the deadliest roads in Colorado Springs and unfortunately provide many opportunities for potentially serious car accidents.

Following the nationwide trend, Colorado Springs car accidents have also been on the rise. According to an analysis from Colorado Springs, traffic fatalities had reached an all-time high in 2021 with 84 people dying in traffic crashes last year. This had surpassed Colorado Springs’ 2019 record of 71 people. One of the ways the city is trying to cope with these figures is by reducing the speed limit in residential areas from 25 to 20 MPH. This so-called “20 is plenty” ordinance has been lauded by safer streets activist groups such as The Denver Streets Partnership who see this as the right direction. With only 20% of total traffic accidents happening on roads with speed limits of 25 MPH or less, time will tell if this ordinance will have the desired effect.

There are many different types of car accidents, but multi-vehicle accidents are one of them. When two or more cars come together, accidents like this happen all the time. You have a good chance that three vehicles will be hit when two vehicles hit each other.

A variety of factors caused these collisions. Distracted driving, speeding, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving in bad weather, driving the wrong way, and failing to obey traffic laws are examples of dangerous behaviours.
