By  | 

At least one person is dead after an accident involving a semi and a car Sunday morning.

State patrol said the accident happened on Highway 160 on La Veta Pass. That is west of Walsenburg.

The highway was initially closed while emergency crews respond to the scene. One lane of alternating traffic has not been opened up, but State Patrol still asked drivers to use an alternate route, if possible, because of traffic backups.

The road was completely reopened around 1:45 p.m.
