Several people were rushed to the hospital after a truck smashed through the front doors of the Colorado Convention Center Monday night.

Denver7's Molly Hendrickson talked to a witness at the scene who said the truck was going westbound on California and blew right through the intersection.


The white truck took out a small tree and crashed through the glass doors.

One woman's foot was run over, Hendrickson reported. That woman was put in a wheelchair and taken to the hospital.

A couple other people were hit by debris. One other victim was taken to the hospital by ambulance, Henderson said during a live report on Denver7 News.

The driver was out of the truck and walking around. He was also taken to away in an ambulance.

"At this time we are working to determine if DUI was a factor," the Denver Police Department tweeted at about 9:30 p.m.
