KEENESBURG, Colo. — A major Colorado interstate has reopened after a deadly crash involving two semis.

At 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, two semis crashed in the westbound lanes of Interstate 76 near milemarker 42, just east of Keenesburg. One person was killed in the crash, according to Colorado State Patrol.

CSP Public Affairs said they believe at least one of the semis had rolled over. A hazmat team cleaned up the spilled diesel fuel.
