DENVER – U.S. Highway 285 was shut down in both directions at Kenosha Pass Monday morning after a head-on crash involving three vehicles but reopened Monday afternoon.

The crash happened shortly after 8 a.m. on the south end of the pass, near Jefferson. One person was flown to a hospital after the crash, according to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis.

Lewis said at least one semi-truck was involved in the crash, along with two other vehicles. Lewis said the person who was flown to a hospital from the crash was the only person transported to a hospital.

Crews were working to move the trailer so traffic can get by the crash earlier in the afternoon.
