Two drivers were cited in an accident Jan. 4 at 4:05 p.m. in front of the Evergreen post office.

Four people left the accident in two ambulances, and traffic was blocked on Evergreen Parkway going south while officers extricated the victims. Both cars were seriously damaged. Two people were injured but not seriously.

Diana Kay Gibbons, 60, of 168 Siesta Circle in Evergreen, received a ticket for careless driving causing bodily injury, according to the accident report compiled by the Colorado State Patrol.

The party driving a 2008 Lexus, Cynthia Rae Giffen, 43, of 6191 Arapahoe Drive in Evergreen, was cited for driving with license under restraint. “Under restraint” means the license is revoked or suspended for some reason. Giffen had two boys, ages 6 and 4, in the car.

Gibbons was driving a black 2000 Chrysler Sebring east from the post office driveway when her car collided with the silver Lexus going south on the frontage road. The Lexus rotated 360 degrees in a counterclockwise direction and came to rest on its wheels facing south.

After hitting the Lexus, the Sebring, with its left side crushed in, ran off the embankment and landed on its wheels facing east.

Both drivers had insurance.
