DENVER (KDVR) — Interstate 25 was closed near Pueblo after a train derailed Sunday afternoon.
Multiple agencies reported and responded to the incident just after 4 p.m.
The train derailed on a bridge over I-25 near mile markers 106 and 107. Colorado State Patrol said both directions of I-25 were closed due to train cars and coal on the road.
Pueblo West Fire advises drivers to not travel northbound past exit 104 and advises drivers not to travel south past exit 108 as the interstate was expected to be closed for an extended amount of time.
CSP shared photos of the incident and told FOX31 that there was a semi-trapped. CSP said Pueblo Fire was working to get the driver out and did not know the status of the driver as of 5:55 p.m.
Multiple agencies asked drivers to avoid the area.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office said drivers headed north on I-25 from Pueblo to Colorado Springs could exit at Highway 50 and go west toward Penrose and continue north on Highway 115.
PCSO advised southbound traffic from Colorado Springs to Pueblo to take exit 135 to Highway 115 south as an alternate route.
Both routes eventually lead to I-25.
FOX31 has a reporter headed to the scene to gather more information.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more details become available.
