RTD bus driver ran red light, caused multi-vehicle crash, CSP says

Four people were injured in the Aug. 25 crash on South Parker Road that involved six vehicles.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — An RTD bus driver ran a red light, causing a multi-vehicle crash last month on South Parker Road in Centennial.

The crash was reported just before 6:30 a.m. Aug. 25 in the northbound lanes of South Parker Road near Orchard Road, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

It involved an RTD bus and five other vehicles.

A spokesman for CSP said four people were transported to the hospital as a result of the crash. At least one of them was trapped and had to be extricated from their vehicle.

CSP initially indicated that the driver of an SUV might have been at fault for the crash.

But investigators obtained video that showed the RTD bus driver, identified as Nathan Yitbark, running a red light. They determined that he was at fault for the crash. He was cited for multiple counts of careless driving resulting in injury, CSP said.
