A News5 employee captured this video of the traffic standstill. She says an over turned semi tractor trailer with a full load is blocking both lanes of north bound traffic. Traffic was backed up at a complete stop just past the Colorado state line. New Mexico state troopers are keeping traffic off Raton Pass and have a road block at New Mexico mile marker 454 on I-25.
