I-25 back open after semi crosses median, causes crash

There were injuries in the crash that involved multiple vehicles at South Mulberry Street, according to authorities.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A semi crossed the median of Interstate 25 in Fort Collins on Thursday, causing a crash at East Mulberry Street, according to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP).

CSP troopers and other agencies responded to the crash at 11:50 a.m. Thursday in the southbound lanes of I-25, east of Fort Collins. A  semi crossed the median, causing a crash with multiple vehicles, said CSP Master Trooper Gary Cutler.

Construction barriers between northbound and southbound lanes were broken, and agencies were moving barriers to help get traffic out of the area, CSP said.

Poudre Fire Authority (PFA) said that three vehicles including the semi were involved, and firefighters conducted an extended extrication of a person from one of the vehicles. An extended extrication involves medically treating a patient while removing the vehicle from around them, PFA said.

The person who was trapped in the vehicle had serious injuries and was taken to a hospital. Two other people with injuries were assessed and didn't require treatment, PFA said.

I-25 northbound reopened to traffic about 1 p.m. The southbound lanes reopened about 3:45 p.m.
