COLORADO SPRINGS — All southbound traffic into Colorado Springs on I-25 is now moving freely again after an hour-and-a-half closure at the N Academy exit due to a crash.

There were two incidents just before 5 a.m. The first was a crash involving a tractor trailer that left debris all over the road. The second was further north involving the car on fire.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department and officers had the interstate blocked for the cleanup and the small sedan engulfed in flames near Woodmen Rd.
