DENVER — All lanes of inbound traffic along Pena Boulevard have reopened after a crash closed the road between 56th Avenue and Tower Road on Thursday morning.
Fire crews responded to the crash at about 8:30 a.m., according to Denver Fire Department (DFD) Public Information Officer Greg Pixley.

One person was being evaluated for smoke inhalation and a second person was being evaluated for injuries, Pixley said.
There was no information about the extent of injuries to the patients or who was at fault.
Just after 10 a.m. Denver International Airport (DIA) reported that one lane of inbound traffic had opened. About two hours later, all lanes of Pena reopened, though the shoulder remains closed as cleanup efforts continue.
DIA suggested that drivers traveling to the airport take Tower Road to Pena Boulevard to avoid the closure.
