sum rasters

I posted this to spatial analyst but thought it might be more appropriate here.
I have reclassified many raster to be only 0's and 1's and I would like to sum the 1's together and output a new raster which is basically a count of those rasters.
I have used the code from a thread in spatial analyst so I am open to different tools to do this processing.
When I run the code I do receive an output but it is wrong and python keeps crashing each time I try to run it so I don't receive an error message.
Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong.
# Import system modules
import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from import *
import os

# Set environment settings
arcpy.env.workspace = "D:/sumrasters/rasterimgs"
arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = 1
arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace = r"c:\temp\scratch.gdb"

#create a list of rasters in the workspace
rasters = arcpy.ListRasters("*","IMG")

i = 0
#loop through rasters in list
for raster in rasters:
    print rasters
    #sum rasters together
    if i == 0:
        outSUM = arcpy.Raster(raster)
        i += 1
        outSUM = outSUM + raster
        i += 0

#save final output to the current workspace,"sumRas.img"))

print "end of processing"
