Northbound I-25 shut down near Larkspur following 2 multi-vehicle crashes Thursday morning – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Colorado Springs, Colorado 2021-11-25 12:09:39 –

According to the Denver-Colorado Patrol, the north-facing lane of Interstate 25 was closed early Thursday morning near Larkspur after two collisions on a highway involving multiple vehicles.

According to CSP spokesman Josh Lewis, the NB I-25 was closed between Upper Lake Gulch Road and Spruce Mountain Road. The crash caused minor injuries, Lewis said.

Traffic is diverted to the northbound I-25 at the Spruce Mountain Road exit, and the driver returns from the ramp to the interstate highway. When heading from Colorado Springs, it’s a good idea to head east from the monument to Highway 83 to avoid a crash.

It’s not clear how the crash happened, but Lewis said he’s working to clear the area for investigation. The crashes were reported to each other in 20 minutes and the first call occurred at 7:35 am.

There is no estimate for reopening the northbound lane.
