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.
