With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
Two people died this afternoon in a four vehicle accident on I-25 between Pueblo and Colorado Springs. The accident happened around 1:00pm, and closed the highway for about two hours after. Three people were also injured.
Colorado State Trooper Richard Breece says the accident happened
when a vehicle trying to get onto the northbound lanes failed to
yield. The vehicle was hit from behind and it veered into the
southbound lanes, where it crashed head-on into another vehicle. A
person in each of the vehicles in the southbound lanes died after
they were hit by a semi.
Names have not been released.
Breece said another accident involved two other vehicles that
tried to stop.
