FOUNTAIN — Southbound I-25 is reopened at South Academy Boulevard following a crash Thursday evening, according to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP).

CSP says the crash involved several vehicles, and one person is in critical condition. They also say the crash was a hit-and-run.

It is unclear at this time what caused the crash.

A detour is in place for vehicles to get off at South Academy Boulevard. Due to the highway's closure for construction, vehicles can get back onto I-25 at US-85.

This is a developing story. News5 has a crew heading to the scene and will update this web story as we learn more.
