I-25 northbound reopens at Speer after pedestrian hit

DENVER - All northbound lanes of Interstate 25 are reopened at Speer Boulevard after being closed to allow Denver Police to investigate a pedestrian who was hit by a car.

Police also closed the on-ramp there to investigate the crash. They say the pedestrian, a black male, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital.

The 49-year-old pedestrian was hit in the far-left lane while trying to cross in the shadows of the overpass. He is considered to be in critical condition.

Colorado Department of Transportation cameras and 7NEWS cameras showed emergency vehicles parked in the shadow of the bridge and one station wagon in the left shoulder with apparent front-end damage. The scene was cleared and the roadway reopened around 2:15 p.m.
