JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A crash involving a semi has led to an hours-long closure of Highway 285 near Indian Hills Friday afternoon.
The crash happened just after noon, according to tweets from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. Northbound Highway 285 is closed between Parmalee Gulch Road and Highway 8. It's not clear how long that closure is expected to last.
