A person was hit in the northbound lanes of I-25 on Sunday evening, leading to a traffic backup that didn't clear for hours.
Denver Police say I-25 NB was shut down at 20th Ave. for the collision. It happened just after 5:30 p.m.
The investigation severely impacted Broncos traffic. The northbound lanes were closed between the Speer and 38th exits.
