Truck Crunches Car

Lafayette woman in serious condition after semi runs light

Nov 3, 2005 | The Daily Times-Call

A Lafayette woman was flown to a Denver hospital in serious condition Wednesday morning after a semi tractor-trailer ran over the front of the woman’s vehicle at 95th Street and Colo. Highway 52, the Colorado State Patrol said.

State Patrol Cpl. Jeremy Miller said the 9 a.m. accident occurred when a semi heading west on Colo. 52 ran a red light at the intersection and its back wheels rolled over a southbound Saturn Twin Cam.

“It appeared she had the green (light),” Miller said at the scene.

The driver of the semi, was cited for careless driving resulting in injury, Miller said.

Troopers at the scene said the truck driver had no prior violations.

The impact of the collision tore off the Saturn’s front bumper, blew out the glass of the side and rear windows and deployed the driver’s side airbag.

The truck’s axle appeared bent, and a rear tire was flat and embedded with glass.

Miller said both drivers were wearing seat belts and speed did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

The Saturn, with temporary tags from Mountain View Motors in Loveland still attached, spun around and came to rest in a field just northwest of the intersection.

Miller said the SVU driver “was talking and answering questions” as Mountain View Fire Department used extrication equipment to remove her from the vehicle.

The victim was flown to Denver Health with serious to moderate injuries, Miller said. He did not have an update of her condition Wednesday evening.
