An accident in the southbound land of Interstate 25 has backed up traffic from Center Street going north up the hill.

A caller to K2 Radio said the accident happened probably after 3:30 p.m.

A motorist going southbound on I-25 apparently struck a guardrail several times, she said.

She saw an ambulance, fire truck and about a half-dozen police cars on the scene.

She did no know if there were any injuries.

Authorities were directing traffic in the southbound lane to exit at Poplar Street or Center Street, she said.
