Drivers avoid serious injuries in Boulder Canyon collision
Two drivers avoided serious injuries Thursday in a head-on collision that forced officials to temporarily close a portion of Boulder Canyon Drive, or Colo. 119, near Nederland.
The crash occurred about 3:50 p.m. Thursday at mile post 31, according to Master Trooper Gary Cutler of the Colorado State Patrol.
Cutler said Colo. 119 between Castle Rock and Hurricane Hill was closed.
The crash involved two cars, one driven by a 27year-old man and the other driven by 51-year-old woman.
Both drivers refused medical treatment, Cutler said.
One car went off the road.
Cutler did not have details about how far off the road the car traveled.
The road was reopened about 6:20 p.m. The cause is under investigation.
