COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A deer on the interstate triggered a domino-effect crash that injured four Tuesday night.

Police say the deer was hit by a car on southbound I-25 between Fillmore Street and Garden of the Gods Road. That car then pulled over onto the shoulder so the occupants could assess the damage.

While the people in that vehicle checked out the car, a second southbound car lost control and crashed into the first vehicle.

The crash was reported just before 9:20 p.m. and shut down the southbound side of the interstate. It reopened by the Wednesday morning rush hour.

Four people were critically injured. Police tell 11 News there were people from both cars who were hurt, but it’s unclear how many from each vehicle.

We will update this article as we learn more.
