A motorcycle and another vehicle collided near 6th Avenue and Knox Court, resulting in life-threatening injuries to at least one person, Denver police reported on Sunday afternoon just after 4 p.m.

All westbound lanes on 6th Avenue were closed, which will likely result in heavy delays. Police advise you avoid the area.

The crash was initially reported as a fatality, but Denver police said later Sunday that the person was in “extremely critical condition.”
