WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — Seven people, including four teenagers, were injured in a three-vehicle crash in Wheat Ridge near the Arvada city line, snarling traffic in the area for about two hours Tuesday afternoon.

The crash was first reported by Arvada Fire officials shortly before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of W. 51st Place and Kipling Street.

Police said four the teens were inside a vehicle traveling southbound on Kipling when they ran a red light at the intersection and collided with two other vehicles, according to Wheat Ridge police.

While the injuries of those seven people are significant, they do not appear to be life-threatening at this time, a spokesperson for Wheat Ridge police said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Kipling was shut down in both directions until about 3 p.m.

No citations have been issued pending the outcome of an investigation.
