A multiple-vehicle accident closed US-85 for a brief time this afternoon between Sedalia to the north and Daniels Park Road to the south.
Colorado State Patrol received a call at 2:18 p.m., according to Trooper Josh Lewis, about a wreck that involved a 2003 Mitsubishi SUV, a 2010 Dodge pickup and a 2011 Kia Optima. It was necessary to shut the highway down for a short time in both directions to clear the scene, but it was reopened at 3:45.
Three parties endured minor injuries in the wreck, and a 37-year-old Sedalia woman, who was the driver of the Mitsubishi, was transported to Littleton Adventist Hospital in critical condition. The woman's name is not being released at this time.
