Colorado Springs Police say drugs were a factor in an overnight crash that forced the closure of Fillmore Street at Pennsylvania Avenue.

Police say Matt Kershaw, 23, was driving eastbound on Fillmore when he crossed over into the westbound lanes and slammed into an oncoming semi truck.

Kershaw and the driver of the semi were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The crash caused a fuel spill. Police say 30 to 40 gallons of gas leaked from the semi truck. The spill was contained and cleaned up by the Colorado Springs Fire Department.

Police say Kershaw is facing charges for driving under the influence of drugs as well as other traffic charges.
