I-25 Reopens After Van-Tanker Crash In Southern Colorado

COLORADO CITY, Colo. (AP) — A portion of Interstate 25 in southern Colorado has reopened following a crash between a van and a tractor-trailer.

Southbound I-25 was closed at milemarker 71 south of the Colorado City exit for about two hours Wednesday morning following the crash.

Colorado State Patrol spokeswoman Heather Cobler said it appears that the van rear ended the tractor-trailer. The truck was pulling a tanker but she said it didn’t leak.
