On Saturday, July 25th in Colorado Springs, a two car collision on I-25 caused a part of the interstate to be closed for four hours, according to KOAA, NBC Channel 5. An investigation by the Colorado Springs police revealed that:
a station wagon was going southbound on the Interstate, when the driver lost control and crossed the center median striking a pickup truck going northbound, pulling an enclosed trailer.
An 18 year-old girl was the driver of the station wagon. There was also an 18 year-old female passenger in the car. A 62 year-old man was driving the truck involved in the accident. The passenger of the station wagon and the driver of the truck were taken to a nearby hospital, but had no serious injuries. The driver of the station wagon remains in critical condition.
The police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the accident. Charges will be determined upon completion of the investigation.
