2 dead, 2 hurt in Interstate 25 crash in Northern Colorado

Two people are dead, and two other were injured in a two-vehicle crash near Wellington in Northern Colorado on Monday, Colorado State Patrol confirmed with CBS News Colorado. The interstate was back open on Monday night after it was closed several hours.

Colorado Department of Transportation said the highway was closed between Colorado Highway 1 and Owl Canyon Road, about 10 miles north of Fort Collins.

Traffic cameras showed a large emergency vehicle response and traffic stopped on both sides of the highway earlier in the afternoon. By about 4 p.m., the cameras were pointed away from the crash, but the roads appeared to have been cleared of traffic, indicating detours were likely put in place.

The Wellington Fire Protection District called the crash "serious," but didn't immediately provide any other details aside from the location.

I-25 is the approximately 1,000-mile highway that runs north and south through the center of New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming, including through Colorado Springs, Denver and Fort Collins.
