Messy Conditions Contribute to Crashes On Interstate

Traffic was backed up for miles on northbound I-25 due to several crashes on the interstate during the early hours of Sunday's blast of winter to the Pikes Peak region.

There were at least five separate crashes near Baptist Road, including a crash involving semi-trucks and one involving a school bus.

They were all in the right lane.

Traffic was reportedly backed up to at least Northgate.

There were no reports of serious injuries. State Patrol believes the snowy and windy conditions were likely factors in all of the crashes.
