A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
A semi-truck carrying lumber rolled over on I-25 in central Colorado Springs Saturday afternoon. The accident blocked lanes until nearly 10:45 p.m. Saturday night.
Southbound lanes were closed shortly after 5 p.m. at the scene of the crash in the southbound lanes near the Cimarron exit.
The driver lost control getting onto the highway from the Cimarron entrance ramp. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
The crash caused significant backups on the interstate. Southbound traffic was diverted off the highway at the Bijou exit during the clean up process.
Excessive speed and wind are being considered possible factors in the rollover.
