A 62-year-old man was killed Tuesday after a semi-truck failed to slow down for a line of cars on the interstate and hit several vehicles.

State Patrol says traffic was backed up on northbound I-25 around mile marker 109 because of an

a few miles north. The driver of a tanker-trailer came up on the traffic snarl still going full speed, State Patrol said, and collided with a number of vehicles.

Steven Aikman, who was a passenger in one of the cars hit, died at the scene. A second person suffered serious injuries, and several other drivers were also hurt.

The crash was reported at 12:40 p.m., two hours after the earlier fatal on I-25. The interstate was shut down for more than an hour in both directions and longer on the northbound side.

Charges in the crash are pending.
