An accident involving an empty flatbed semi and a livestock carrier loaded with 100 goats closed down or impeded traffic for over five hours on Interstate 25 in both the north and south bound lanes Monday afternoon.

The Colorado State Patrol (CSP) received the initial call at 11:44 a.m. about an accident involving an empty flatbed semi and a livestock carrier hauling about 100 goats.

According to CSP the flat bed ran into the back of the livestock carrier with both vehicles ending up in the median and the goats who survived the crash wandering around in the area.

Rye Fire Protection District was first on the scene of the accident which eventually involved CSP, Pueblo County Sheriff, Pueblo County Fire and citizens in the area who answered a call to help pick up and deliver the goats to nearby areas for safekeeping.

According to RFPD Chief Steve Bennett, the animals combined with the accident created a serious situation which required multiple resources because of the magnitude of the situation.
