Freeway and Highway Accidents in Denver

Nicknamed the Mile-High City, Denver is the capital and most populous municipality of the State of Colorado. Located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains, Denver is located just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Denver’s State Highway 470 (known as Colorado 470 / SH 470) runs through the southwestern portion of the Denver metro area's beltway and is a freeway for its entire length.

Especially in the winter months when ice and snow cover the roadways, car accidents can be particularly devastating. The most serious car accidents occur on the two main interstate freeways, I-25 and I-70, which serve Denver, CO.

The location where the two freeways intersect is called the "the mousetrap.” When viewed from above, the vehicles at the junction look like mice running in a large mouse trap. Serious and fatal car accidents are common in and around the junction.
