COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A pedestrian was killed in a crash on northbound Interstate 25 in Colorado Springs Monday evening, according to police.

He has been identified as 36-year-old Tony Barton of Security.

The crash happened around 7:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the interstate just south of Fontanero Street.

Police said four people were running westbound across the interstate when Barton was by a van and died on scene.

Police said neither speed nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash; their investigation continues.

Police said an unrelated two-car crash happened shortly after the first crash, and appeared to be caused by the drivers’ divided attention.

Northbound I-25 between Uintah and Fontanero was closed for several hours while police investigated the crash. It reopened around 11:30 p.m. Monday night.

This is the 24th traffic-related death in Colorado Springs in 2019. At this time last year, there were 25 traffic fatalities in the city.
