(COLORADO SPRINGS) — A driver was ejected after hitting an unmarked police car in a crash that closed Woodmen Road for several hours on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD), officers responded around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday to the intersection of Commerce Center Drive and East Woodmen Road on a rollover crash with injuries.

When officers arrived, they learned a car was heading westbound when it hit another car, a CSPD detective in an unmarked car, from behind. The first car rolled multiple times, ejecting the driver. Both drivers were taken to the hospital.

CSPD said impairment does not appear to be a factor in the crash, though police did not specify if anyone had been cited, or the condition of either driver.

The Major Crash Team responded to assume the investigation.
