Thornton police: one killed, one injured in I-25 rollover crash

One person is dead and another is injured after a rollover crash on Interstate 25, near 128th Avenue.

Thornton police received the call about the multiple-vehicle wreck at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, said police spokesman Matt Barnes. Officers are still investigating the crash, and long delays in both directions of I-25 are expected.

On Tuesday morning, a vehicle heading northbound on I-25 collided with another vehicle, rolled over the center median and struck a vehicle traveling southbound head on. The vehicle that rolled hit at least one other vehicle in the southbound lanes.

The driver of the rolled vehicle died on the scene of the wreck, Barnes said. At least one other person involved in the crash was injured.

Barnes didn’t immediately have information about the victims, vehicles or events leading up to the crash. Police expect southbound I-25 to be shut down from 136th to 120th avenues until at least 2 p.m. Two northbound lanes are being blocked from 120th to 136th.
