Highway 2 closed at 96th Avenue in Commerce City due to 4-vehicle crash

A four-vehicle crash closed down Highway 2 at 96th Avenue on Monday morning.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Highway 2 near 96th Avenue in Commerce City is closed due to a four-vehicle crash, including a rolled semi-truck hauling gravel, according to the Commerce City Police Department. 

Police said the crash happened at about 7 a.m.. One person was injured in the wreck and taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

Four other people were treated for injuries at the scene and release by medical crews, according to the South Adams County Fire Department (SACFD). 

A preliminary investigation indicated the semi was traveling eastbound at 96th Avenue at Highway 2 when the vehicle collided with cars entering the intersection, police said. 

The semi then crossed over the median of 96th Ave. and came to a rest on its side in the backyard of multiple residences in the Eagle Creek Sub Division.

Video from SKY9 showed the rolled over semi-truck had damaged the fencing of nearby homes.

Highway 2 is currently closed at 96th Avenue as crews investigate and clean up the scene. The road closure is expected to be extensive due to a significant fuel spill, according to police. 

Alcohol and drugs are not suspected as being a factor in the crash.
