DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. – Traffic was snarled along the northbound lanes of Interstate 25 near Castle Rock Tuesday for nearly 90 minutes due to a large crash involving around 20 vehicles.
The crash was first reported at around 10:09 a.m. Tuesday by the Colorado State Patrol. Road closures soon followed on NB I-25 from Plum Creek Parkway to Meadows Parkway.
Two left lanes on the southbound lanes of the highway were also closed to allow first responders to get to the scene but were cleared by about 12:13 p.m., according to a tweet from the Colorado Department of Transportation.
The northbound lanes reopened by 11:20 a.m., according to the department.
Medical crews were on the way shortly after 10:30 a.m. Approximately three people were taken to a hospital for treatment following the large crash, according to CSP Trooper Gabriel Moltrer. No information about their conditions was immediately released.
The roads are wet in the area due to an on-and-off rain-snow mix that is expected to last through the day.
