LOVELAND, Colo. — A crash between two semis on U.S. 34 closed the highway in both directions at Interstate 25 for about five hours Friday afternoon, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The crash between the two semis was reported by the Colorado Department of Transportation just after 12:30 p.m. Friday. One of those semis ended up catching fire, CSP officials said.

U.S. 34 was closed eastbound at Boyd Lake Ave. while the westbound lanes were closed at Centerra, the Loveland Police Department said in a tweet. By 4:30 p.m., U.S. 34 had reopened completely, followed by I-25 about an hour later.

Traffic was being diverted from the 402 over to CR13 to Highway 392 and back to the byway, officials from the Colorado State Patrol said.

CSP told Denver7 at least one of the drivers involved in the crash suffered a non-life threatening burn.
