Alcohol suspected in early morning rollover crash along I-25

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo (KRDO) -- The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) and the Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) responded to a rollover crash early Saturday morning on I-25.

At around 4:18 a.m., first responders arrived at the scene of a crash involving a car that hit an unattended parked car on the shoulder of I-25 near the Cimarron street exit. The driver of the car received minor injuries.

Police are still actively investigating the crash, but police said they suspect the driver was under the influence of alcohol and played a key role in the crash. Police have not released his identity.

The I-25 southbound off-ramp to Cimarron Street was closed for approximately one hour but has since reopened.

  1. “Police are still actively investigating the crash, but police said they suspect the driver was under the influence of alcohol and played a key role in the crash.”
    .
    If his was the only vehicle involved, other than the one parked on the shoulder, there’s a high probability that the driver “played a key role in the crash.”
    And CSPD is now reporting that alcohol WAS a factor in this crash.

  2. But why no report on the fatal, multi-vehicle crash on N. Academy Blvd just south of E. Woodmen Rd? It happened last night shortly before 11:30 PM.

      1. KRDO finally reported it here 46 minutes after my comment. Looks like someone was actually reading the comments . . . 🙄
