AURORA, Colo. — The northbound ramp to Peña Boulevard from eastbound Interstate 70 reopened just before 8 a.m. Monday due to a crash, the Aurora Police Department tweeted.

There were two drivers involved in the wreck Monday morning. Both drivers were taken to nearby hospitals with serious injuries, according to APD.

There was a Diesel fuel spill as a result of the wreck. The cleanup crew was expected to arrive around 8 a.m. Monday, APD tweeted.

However, officers could not estimate when the Peña Boulevard ramp would reopen, as of 6:40 a.m. APD expected it would be closed for several hours, and recommended drivers find an alternate route.

Aurora police officers were still waiting on a tow truck for one of the vehicles involved in the crash as of 7:55 a.m.

One lane may need to be closed again briefly to remove the vehicle from the side of the road, APD warned.
