The crash happened at about 3 a.m. at Colfax and Bannock. Police said a driver was headed east on Colfax from I-25 at high speeds, and was allegedly running red lights.

The car hit the median, smashed into a piece of art and then rolled, coming to rest in Civic Center Park. The car then caught fire.

Two people were pulled out of the car and transported to the hospital. Updates on their conditions weren’t immediately available.
