Dr. David Steinbruner, of UCHealth Memorial Hospital system, said that his medical center received a total of 10 patients.

“Both trauma teams at both hospitals were spun up and responded, the ERs responded, and we (were) able to take care of this very rapidly, and get the patients taken care of as well as we could at the time,” he said.

“We do have patients in critical condition as well,” Steinbruner said. “Several people being taken care of in our ICU.”

The injured victims were transferred to three different hospitals, according to Fire Chief Randy Royal.
