COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Speed may be behind a serious crash that sent more than half a dozen people to the hospital Wednesday night.

Just before 6 p.m. the Colorado Springs Fire Department reported they were responding to the crash near Airport and Powers. The department added one person was trapped and the public should “expect delays.”

According to police at the scene, eight people were taken to the hospital between the four cars involved. Investigators believe one of the drivers may have been speeding, however, the exact cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Officers on scene say a Volkswagen Jetta was heading west on Airport Road when it hit a Nissan Xterra, which was turning eastbound into a mobile home park on the north side of Airport Road.

The impact of the crash reportedly caused the driver of the Nissan to hit a Ford F150 and Nissan Quest.

At the time of the crash, Airport Road was closed between Troy Hill Road and Sand Creek Drive but has since reopened.
