Two Killed in Colorado Springs Car Accident

Comments Off

Two people and a dog were killed in a late night car accident on Interstate 25 in Colorado Springs. The driver of one car was driving in the wrong direction on the interstate and fleeing the police. He hit another car head on, killing the driver of that car and her dog.

Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash, which happened at 12:30 Tuesday morning. Northbound lanes of the interstate were closed for five hours. They re-opened in time for the morning commute. The crash happened near mile marker 137.

All of the victims died at the scene of the accident. It is not known why the car was driving the wrong way on the interstate. In 2006 he had pled guilty to reckless driving for driving 42-mph above the speed limit.
