COLORADO SPRINGS — Both lanes on southbound I-25 between Circle Drive and Academy Boulevard are no longer closed following a crash.

Emergency vehicles arrived to the scene around 8:50 a.m.

A News5 viewer called in to let us know traffic was backed up due to the accident.

Traffic was reported backed up almost three miles to the MLK Bypass.

Another crash was reported on westbound MLK Bypass at I-25 that was blocking the lane to southbound I-25.

All traffic on westbound MLK Bypass needed to go northbound at I-25.

Both lanes were blocked at one point just north of S. Academy on I-25.

We are working to learn more details about the incident.
