Cars were swallowed early Thursday when floodwaters undercut Dillon Road near Highway 287, between Lafayette and Broomfield.
The situation was first reported with a 911 call at 5:58 a.m. Rescuers from the North Metro and Lafayette Fire Departments were dispatched and found three vehicles partially submerged.
"We were able to use ropes to stabilize the cars first," Sara Farris, North Metro Fire Rescue spokeswoman, explained.
Water rushed over and through all of the vehicles. One vehicle, a silver sedan, fully overturned in the water.
"There was one victim in each of the three cars, so three victims totals, they each had minor injuries," Farris said.
The three drivers were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Crews are still trying to determine how to take the vehicles out of the water.
