Two injured in three-vehicle crash on U.S. 285 in the Pine area

Two people were injured in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 285 in the Pine area on Monday morning.

The crash happened at about 8:15 a.m. near Jubilee Trail, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

One person, a 46-year-old man, was taken by helicopter to St. Anthony Hospital Central in Lakewood. Another person, a 24-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, said Trooper Josh Lewis, a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.

The driver of one vehicle was heading north and crossed into oncoming southbound traffic, said Jenny Fulton, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman.

That caused a head-on collision and a third vehicle was also involved, Fulton said.

One vehicle caught fire in the wreckage. The highway was still closed at 11 a.m. because of the crash.
