MONUMENT, Colo. — A box truck crashed and landed on top of a temporary barrier along the southbound lanes of Interstate 25 by Monument Wednesday morning.

The 30-foot box truck had left debris in the northbound lanes of the highway, causing drivers to get flat tires, according to Colorado State Patrol.

For some time, all southbound lanes were closed and only one northbound lane was getting by. By 6:30 a.m., all lanes had reopened.

This occurred in the I-25 Gap project area where the lanes are very narrow, which can be problematic for truck drivers, according to Denver7 traffic report Jayson Luber.
