Traffic Crash - Fatality
Title
North Union Blvd and Austin Bluffs Pkwy
Location
On March 12, 2019, at approximately 2:00 PM, the Colorado Springs Police Department was notified of a two-car crash beneath the overpass at the intersection of North Union Boulevard and Austin Bluffs Parkway. Responding officers determined that a Dodge van, driven by 91-year-old Alberta Lou Davis of Colorado Springs, was traveling northbound on North Union Boulevard when it crossed into the eastbound turn lane of southbound Union Boulevard. The van struck a Ford pickup truck that was waiting to turn left. The driver of the truck was uninjured; however, Mrs. Davis was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of her injuries. Excessive speed, alcohol, and drugs are not considered factors in this case.

On March 17, 2019, Mrs. Davis succumbed to the injuries she suffered in this crash. She is the eighth traffic-related fatality in Colorado Springs this year. There were also eight traffic fatalities in Colorado Springs at this time last year.

Anyone with information or is a witness to this investigation is asked to call the Colorado Springs Police Department at (719) 444-7000; or if you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (719) 634-STOP (7867) or 1-800-222-8477.

Friday, 03/15/19, 8:40 AM: **CSPD is off accident-alert status**

Due to deteriorating road and weather conditions, CSPD is on Accident Alert Status as of 8:50 AM, 3/13/19.
Drivers are reminded if they are involved in a traffic accident with no fatalities or injuries requiring medical attention, no driver involved is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, all drivers are present with license, registration and insurance information, and no damage to public property such as a street sign or utility pole has occurred, drivers should exchange their information and follow the procedure for completing a counter (cold) report. When damage to any vehicle requires a wrecker, a counter report can still be made providing the previous criteria is met. Drivers can either pick up a traffic accident report form at any of the police department substations or they can go on line at Coloradosprings.gov > Public Safety > Police > Report a Minor Traffic Accident (or cspd.coloradosprings.gov > Report a Minor Traffic Accident). Drivers are also reminded to take the appropriate steps to avoid being involved in a traffic accident during adverse weather and road conditions. Drivers should check road and travel conditions before heading out and leave more time to get to their destination. Drivers need to travel at a safe speed for the conditions and leave an increased and safe following distance from the vehicle in front of them. Drivers should use streets and roadways less hazardous in winter driving conditions. Drivers also need to remove snow and ice obstructing their vision and have adequate snow tires on their vehicles. Finally, if you are considering driving, assess whether you need to be on the roads or whether your reason for driving can wait for safer conditions
