Multiple Crashes Slow Morning Commute

Multiple crashes left traffic at a standstill Monday morning north of Monument, particularly in the northbound lanes.

According to Colorado State Patrol, there were at least four crashes around 8 a.m. between Monument Hill and Larkspur. None were reported as serious, but snarled traffic for miles in the northbound lanes.

Southbound I-25 was also backed up around the same time starting in Castle Rock because of a crash near Tomah Road.
