I-25 closed for hours after Fort Collins crash
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Several people were badly injured Saturday in a traffic accident on Interstate 25 in Fort Collins.
The crash occurred about 12:50 p.m. near the Harmony Road exit, where CDOT crews were doing guardrail work that narrowed the road to a single lane.
A white Ford pickup heading south apparently failed to slow for the traffic caused by the road work, slamming into an Infiniti car. A woman and child in the car were seriously injured. The child’s injuries were initially considered life-threatening, but are now considered survivable.
Five other vehicles were also struck, leaving three people with minor injuries and one other person seriously hurt.
The pickup driver was also moderately injured, police said. He was being investigated for drug use.
The southbound lanes of I-25 were closed for three-and-a-half hours.
