Denver is home to over 705,000 people and many of them drive cars, trucks or buses. But sadly, it’s also home to a vast number of car accidents.

These crashes result in an average of five seriously injured individuals per day and four deaths per week. Still, statistics don’t reveal the pain and trauma experienced by victims, families and communities.
