BREAKING: Five-vehicle collision at Canada Post in Golden

The vehicle left the roadway, crashing into four vehicles in the parking lot

At approximately 10:10 a.m. on Thursday, April 11, a black Ford Explorer crashed into several vehicles in the Post Office parking lot in Golden.

The vehicle, which witnesses say had two occupants, accelerated from 5th Street N., over the curb, and into the post office parking lot. It then collided with a red Toyota car, with a dog inside, and a white Dodge Caravan post office delivery van, turning both cars 90 degrees. It then ran into the rear end of a green Ford Escape, pushing it into the fence on the other side, and another black Ford vehicle.

Witness Eryn LaRose said she was about to get into the post office van as the accident was happening. She heard screeching tires, saw the vehicle collide with the red Toyota car, and felt the impact on her vehicle. She was able to jump out of the way as her van moved nearly 90 degrees from its parked position toward her.

The sole occupant of the red car seemed unphased. The border collie dog stood off to the side as emergency personnel arrived on scene.

Post office employees and interested passers by gathered around the scene. Golden Fire Rescue was first to arrive, and began clearing people away from the debris and treating the vehicle occupants.

Tire marks show that the black Ford escape left the roadway on 5th Street N., heading into the post office parking lot over the curbside.

No further details are available at this time.
