A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
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.
