CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Two people are dead following a crash involving an unmarked Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle near the Broncos practice facility.

The deputy had “moderate” injuries following the crash, according to Colorado State Patrol.

The crash happened around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of East Broncos Parkway and South Blackhawk Street.

A preliminary investigation of the crash indicated a car was turning left onto East Broncos Parkway from South Blackhawk Street when it was T-boned by an unmarked patrol car, according to CSP.

The patrol car had its sirens on as a deputy was responding to a nearby crash involving a man who was unconscious, CSP said.

The driver of the T-boned car was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the car was taken to the hospital, where they died of their injuries.

The sheriff’s deputy was also taken to the hospital following the crash.

Crash factors like speed, topography and road curvature were still under investigation, CSP said.

The identities of the deceased driver and passenger will be released at a later time.
