The co-owner of a North Fork area business and his three family members are recovering from injuries sustained July 6 in a three-car collision in Jefferson County near Denver. Seth Schwartz, of West Palm Beach, Fla., and his family are doing well and on their way to recovering, said Seth's brother, Jeff Schwartz. The brothers are co-owners of Big B's Juices in Hotchkiss.

According to Trooper Nate Reid with the Colorado State Patrol, a 1999 Peterbilt semi-truck with tractor was eastbound in the middle lane of Interstate 70 near Highway 6, following a 2016 Chevy Malibu driven by Schwartz and a 2009 Toyota Yaris. As all three entered a construction zone with a closed left lane, the Toyota and the Malibu slowed down for the traffic. The Peterbilt was unable to stop and collided with the rear of the Chevy, causing it to spin into the closed left lane. The Peterbilt continued, striking the rear of the Toyota.

According to a CSP press release, the driver of the Peterbilt was uninjured and the Toyota driver received minor injuries. Schwartz and his wife were treated for moderate injuries and were released from St. Anthony Hospital in Denver. Their 5-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son were flown to Children's Hospital with serious injuries. Both were properly restrained by booster seats.

The crash remains under investigation.
