Two separate crashes on interstates just outside of Albuquerque are causing slow-moving traffic on Monday evening.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jayme Fuller said a driver went over a bridge on Interstate 25 between the Isleta and Broadway exits. The driver was transported to a hospital and has non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have shut down one lane of westbound I-40 west of the Route 66 Casino Hotel after two semi-trucks collided. A BCSO spokeswoman said both drivers were treated for injuries at the scene. (Adolphe Pierre-Louis/Albuquerque Journal)

Northbound I-25 is currently down to one lane, Fuller said. State Police have taken over the investigation.

Fuller also said westbound Interstate 40 is down to one lane after two semi-trucks collided just west of the Route 66 Casino Hotel. She said both drivers were treated at the scene and were not transported to a hospital.
