6 people have minor to serious injuries after 3-car crash involving vehicle stalled on I-25

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. - The Colorado State Patrol is investigating a three-car crash that shut down northbound Interstate 25 near Larkspur early Sunday morning.

A 2009 Hyundai Sonata stopped in the right lane of I-25, near mile marker 174, was hit by two other vehicles, according to Trooper Nate Reid, with the Colorado State Patrol.

A 2012 Dodge Journey rear ended the Hyundai, Trooper Reid said. The Journey rolled over once and landed on its wheels.

Then a 2007 Chevy Aveo hit the Hyundai.

All six of the occupants of the three vehicles were transported to Castle Rock Adventist, Reid said.

Dawn Few, 38, from Aurora, was transported in serious condition. She had been driving the Hyundai.

The driver of the Dodge was identified as 34-year-old Eugene Vandyk from Castle Rock. He was transported with minor injuries, Reid confirmed.

The driver of the Chevy was identified as 56-year-old Harlow Tapia from Colorado Springs. He was also transported with minor injuries, along with the other three occupants of his car: a 20-year-old male, a 15-year-old female and an 18-year-old female.

Northbound I-25 reopened at about 6 a.m., according to 7NEWS Photojournalist Eric Goody.

There was no information available about whether any of the drivers would face citations.
