It was a close call for a state trooper whose car was hit after he responded to an accident. It happened on southbound Interstate 25 near the North Academy exit.

It all started when Colorado State Patrol chased a reckless driver whose car eventually hit another car and rolled over three times.

Another state trooper, Sgt. Tony Rasnake, was called to the scene and was hit by another car.

I-25 southbound was shut down for two hours while the northbound lanes were backed up for miles.

The reckless driver and three other passengers in the car were taken to the hospital with injuries.
