Speeding may have been a factor in a two-car collision on the interstate that shut down the roadway for hours and left one person dead.

State Patrol tells 11 News the at-fault driver rear-ended another vehicle as both were heading northbound near the Greenland exit Wednesday afternoon. After slamming into the back of the car, the vehicle hit a guardrail, went airborne, then flipped end over end and crashed into a guardrail again.

The woman behind the wheel suffered serious injuries. Her condition Thursday is unknown.

The other driver sustained moderate injuries. There were no other people in that vehicle.

Northbound I-25 was closed for four hours from Baptist Road despite the crash happening about 10 miles north of there.

State Patrol said the name of the deceased will not be released until the family is notified.
