MORRISON, Colo. — Four people were injured in a four-vehicle accident involving a Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy Sunday evening.

U.S. 285 northbound was closed about 8 p.m. near Doubleheader Ranch Road.  The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office reported that the deputy’s vehicle was rear-ended.

Four patients were hospitalized with non- life threatening injuries, the Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District said.

The accident occurred in the same area as a six-car crash that killed a JeffCo school bus driver in March.
