Trooper’s vehicle struck while assisting GJPD at accident scene
A Colorado State Patrol vehicle — on-scene with local police at a single-vehicle crash on the 29 Road overpass, south of North Avenue — was struck by another car this morning.
The trooper, outside of the car at the time of the crash, was uninjured, but the driver of the 2007 Honda Accord that slid into the police cruiser sustained minor injuries, the CSP said.
“The crashes add to an alarming number of recent, similar incidents in which Colorado State Patrol vehicles have been struck by careless or impaired motorists. Since December 19, at least six crashes have injured Troopers or damaged Colorado State Patrol vehicles across the state,” police said in a release.
