CBS 4 in Denver is reporting that alcohol may have led to an October 6 Colorado Springs car accident involving a vehicle going the wrong way on Interstate 25. According to CBS 11 in Colorado Springs, at 1:20 a.m., a Dodge Ram pickup truck was heading south in the northbound lanes of I-25 near Rockrimmon Boulevard. At the same time, a Toyota SUV was traveling north in the northbound lanes of I-25.
Eventually, the Toyota and Ram’s paths crossed leading to a collision. Due to the severity of the accident, the occupants of the SUV had to be cut out of the vehicle. The number of occupants in the Toyota and their injury status had not been released as of this report.
After the accident, the northbound lanes of I-25 were closed from Garden of the God’s Road to North Nevada Avenue until 6:10 a.m. while authorities investigated and cleaned up the accident scene. Investigators told CBS 11 that the Ram got onto I-25 at Rockrimmon, but entered heading the wrong direction and that alcohol might have played a role in the crash. The investigation into the wreck was still ongoing at the time of this report.
