Police Investigate Serious Collision
On July 14, 2021, at approximately 5:57 p.m., Fort Collins 911 received multiple calls regarding a two-car collision at the intersection of East Mulberry Street and the Southeast I-25 Frontage Road. Officers were able to determine that a 2019 Ford F-350 was travelling westbound on Mulberry Street and turned left to go south on the Southeast Frontage Road. A 2013 Nissan Rogue was travelling eastbound on Mulberry Street when the two vehicles collided in the intersection.
An adult female was driving the Nissan Rogue, and was the only person in the vehicle. She was transported by helicopter to an area hospital for treatment of serious injuries. There were three people inside the Ford F-350, and all were transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment; their injuries varied in severity from serious to minor. The driver of the Ford F-350 was an adult male and had two juvenile passengers in the vehicle with him.
Due to the severity of the injuries, the Fort Collins Police CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team responded to take over the investigation. Eastbound Mulberry Street was closed from I-25 to County Road 5 for approximately 5 hours while investigators processed the scene.
Officers are working to determine if any of the following factors played a role in the collision: speed, color of the traffic light, and alcohol. If anyone has information regarding the collision and has not already spoken to police, they are asked to call Detective Drew Jurkofsky at (970) 221 6869.
“Our officers are looking at a multitude of factors that may have contributed to the collision and will work diligently to determine the cause of it,” said Sergeant Mike Avrech who oversees the Fort Collins Police CRASH Team.
