Denver Serious Injury Crash September 2022 Update

That Twitter account maintained by the Denver Police Department has been riddled with shootings and stabbings recently, with the first weekend of fall hitting summer levels of violence. But even more widespread are warnings about accidents with serious injuries.

Nine serious injury accidents occurred in the six days between September 20 and 25, including a fatal motorcycle accident and a hit-and-run accident where a motorist hit a pedestrian. And they happened everywhere; only two of the incidents occurred on or near a roadway ranked on our list of the twenty Denver streets with the most serious accidents: Alameda Avenue, which finished in fifth place, and Federal Boulevard in second place.

Despite Vision Zero, a five-year action plan launched in 2017 with the self-described goal of “eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone” by 2030, Denver residents are still injured or worse by a fast cut. So far this year, 68 people have died in road crashes – a pace that is likely to surpass 2021’s total of 84 and could threaten the record of 100 deaths set in 1969.

This map shows where the nine serious injury crashes occurred from September 20 to September 25.
