Colorado Springs Police say that excessive speed is to blame for a single car crash in Southbound I-25 near the Cimarron exit.
The initial call came from an El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy who was passed by a car reportedly going at a high rate of speed while traveling south on the interstate. The Deputy attempted to make contact with the driver of the speeding car but before he could the speeding driver lost control, hitting the center barrier then spinning across the interstate and hitting the guard rail before coming to a stop.
Police estimate the driver was speeding in excess of 100 miles per hour when she lost control. The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Police also report that drugs or alcohol were not factors in the accident.
