The Colorado State Patrol is now investigating the crash. It is not clear whether speed or alcohol are being considered factors, or whether the driver was wearing a seatbelt.

    Second time this building has been hit by a car in the last few years. FIX THE SPEED LIMIT!! I live here. This is an aggressive curve on a 40MPH road that actually turns to 35MPH just before the curve. The speed limit sign has been on the ground for months… anybody home? C’mon, get it together, Englewood! Put in a flippin’ speed limit sign, and a blinking/flashing/radar one if you want to do it right. And also, drivers: SLOW DOWN.
