DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — At least three people have been hospitalized following a head-on crash involving five cars on northbound Parker Road.

The crash damaged three other vehicles, and followed 911 calls from concerned passerby who saw a wrong-way driver on the road.

Crews closed the northbound lanes of Parker Road in Douglas County near E-470 for more than an hour while they responded to the wreck.

Charges have not yet been filed.
