For the second time this year, we’ve seen a car way closer to the Cherry Creek bike path than it should be.
Today, a crash caused a car to hang precariously close to the Cherry Creek bike path and caused at least one injury, according to the Denver Fire Department.
The car has since been secured and is being removed from the scene.
“It’s amazing, if it had been maybe a foot more forward, it would have gone over the edge,” said Denver Fire Department Captain Greg Pixley.
Pixley also says this is a more common occurrence than people think.
“With the location of the creek adjacent to Speer Boulevard, this is a frequent occurrence,” he said. “It doesn’t take much with the amount of energy that the traffic is flowing north and south down Speer for a couple of variables to create a significant mishap where a car could be pushed over the edge.”
“And really, before I could do anything, my car drifted. I looked over, and as I looked over we were literally flying over the wall,” said Robinson, who is the director of the Salud Family Health Center in Fort Lupton.
“I spent the next couple seconds noticing, ‘There’s a walking path, there’s a creek,’ thinking, ‘Maybe I can steer the car so we don’t end up in the water.’”
