Highway 47 is now open after an accident closed the westbound lanes for most of the night.
It happened near Dillon Drive.
Police say a semi truck rear-ended a Hyundai at the intersection.
The driver of the Hyundai, 17, sustained serious head injuries as a result of the accident.
The passenger of the Hyundai, also 17, was treated for minor injuries.
As the driver and passenger are both juveniles, their names will not be released.
At this time the driver of the Semi-truck has not been cited; however, charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
Again, the intersection of Colorado Highway 47 and Dillon Drive is now open
