[11-13-23] One Ejected in Rollover Crash on Lake Avenue

UPDATE: FRIDAY 11/10/2023 7:20 p.m.

(COLORADO SPRINGS) — One person was hospitalized with serious injuries after being thrown from a car during a crash on Lake Avenue at Highway 115 on Friday, Nov. 10.

Emergency crews responded shortly after 4 p.m. to a reported rollover crash at Highway 115 and Lake Avenue. According to CSPD, reports stated that someone in one of the cars had been ejected.

Medical and police units arrived on scene, and found that one of the drivers had been thrown from their car. The investigation revealed that a driver was heading westbound on Lake Avenue and was trying to make a left turn onto Highway 115 when it collided with a car heading eastbound on Lake.

According to CSPD, the eastbound driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the car. Both drivers were taken to the hospital, and the ejected driver suffered serious injuries.

The eastbound lanes of Lake Avenue were immediately shut down, followed by the southbound lanes of Highway 115 as CSFD hazmat crews responded to a chemical spill resulting from the crash.

Highway 115 fully reopened about 45 minutes later, but the eastbound lanes of Lake Avenue didn’t reopen until nearly three hours later, around 7 p.m., according to CSPD.

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.
