BROOMFIELD, Colo. — A fatal crash shut down northbound Interstate 25 between Highway 7 and Erie for a few hours early Thursday morning.

Colorado State Patrol says one person is confirmed dead in the 2 car accident. One other person was transported with serious injuries and one person was not transported.

Police say the call of the accident came in at 2:54 a.m.

Investigators said a 2004 Jeep Liberty driven by 25-yr-old Alex Rodriguez of Ft. Lupton was going southbound in the northbound lanes.

That vehicle hit a 2014 Subaru that was going northbound in the northbound lanes. A 16-year-old male from Windsor was the driver in the Subaru. His passenger, a 19-year-old male from Windsor was killed in the crash.

The 16-year-old’s injuries were described as “life-threatening” Thursday night.

Rodriguez went to a hospital with moderate injuries.

Authorities are looking at DUI as a possible factor – but the accident is still under investigation.

The highway reopened around 8:30 a.m., according to CDOT.
