Fox 31 News reports a man driving east on Speer Blvd Sunday morning was struck by another vehicle, and his SUV ended up in Cherry Creek, right across from Denver Health Medical Center. The driver of the car that hit the SUV is suspected to have run a red light at 8th and Speer, causing the accident. Several passersby jumped into the creek to help the driver of the SUV, who was trapped upside down in his vehicle. These people broke the window, and then some security guards from Denver Health arrived, and helped get the car door open and cut the seatbelt so that the man could be removed from his car. By this time Denver Fire crews had arrived, and the man, who had stopped breathing after several minutes under water was given CPR and taken to the emergency room at Denver Health. Because of the coincidence of occurring right in front of one of the best trauma centers in the country, and some witnesses who were willing to risk their own health to help a stranger, fatality appears to have been avoided as the driver is recovering from his injuries.
