A person is in the hospital Saturday evening in life-threatening condition after an accident at Ohio and Logan in Denver, police said.

Denver Police say they are investigating after three cars crashed at the intersection, sending a person to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Authorities originally told 9NEWS one person had died in the wreck, but have since corrected to say that person had life-threatening injuries. It is not clear at this time what led police to send out the incorrect information.
