COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Two people were hospitalized after a semi-truck flipped on I-25 Saturday afternoon.

The crash closed the southbound half of I-25 at Uintah Street and took crews several hours to clean up.

Colorado Springs police tell 11 News a Safeway truck full of groceries rolled over on I-25 near the Bijou exit around 3:15 p.m. In order to clear the scene, crews had to get the semi back upright first, then tow the truck and clean up the spilled groceries.


I-25 was fully reopened at 10:15 p.m., nearly seven hours after police got the initial call on the crash.
