COLORADO CITY, Colo. (AP) - All lanes of Interstate 25 south of Pueblo are back open now that the wreckage of a tanker truck has been cleared.

The truck carrying butane crashed Thursday morning near Colorado City. Both southbound and northbound lanes re-opened around 1 p.m. Friday.

The Colorado State Patrol says the cab of the truck caught fire, but the butane container was only damaged and didn’t explode.

The driver was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
