THORNTON, Colo. — A tow truck cleared the car crash that shut down all but one lane on southbound Interstate 25 after Thornton Parkway Thursday morning.

The wreck backed up traffic from 92nd Ave. to 104th Ave. on southbound I-25.

The only lane letting drivers through was the right-most lane. The two cars involved in the crash and police took up the left lanes of southbound I-25, according to Denver7 Traffic Expert Jayson Luber.

Even after all lanes of southbound Interstate 25 reopened, there were still some delays from 136th Ave. or so as of 7:00 a.m., Denver7 Traffic Expert Jayson Luber said.

It could take a while to clear all the lanes and get traffic back to normal, Luber said.

He noted side roads were holding more than average amounts of traffic Thursday morning.
