One person injured after crash at 55th Street, Boulder-bound lanes of Diagonal Highway reopened


One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries Tuesday following a two-vehicle crash at Colo. 119 and 55th Street.

The crash occurred about 11:40 a.m. at Colo. 119, also know as the Diagonal Highway, and 55th Street. Boulder-bound lanes on 55th Street were closed shortly after the crash but reopened again at 12:17 p.m., said Trooper Josh Lewis with Colorado State Patrol.

Lewis said the person injured was a 44-year-old woman who had been driving a 2020 Range Rover. There was also a 17-year-old male in the vehicle, but he was not injured.

The Range Rover was driving eastbound on 55th Street when it crossed the Diagonal Highway and struck a 2017 Toyota which was headed southbound, Lewis said. The Toyota overturned into a ditch.

The Toyota was driven by 40-year-old woman and had three passengers inside: One 9-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy, Lewis said. The driver and passengers were all uninjured.

The 44-year-old driver of the Range Rover was cited for careless driving, Lewis said.
