A woman was hit and killed along Interstate 25 late Sunday night.

The Colorado State Patrol investigated an auto-versus-pedestrian crash that happened on southbound I-25 near Mesa Ridge Parkway in Fountain. The deadly crash forced the closure of southbound I-25 at about 9:30 p.m.

State Patrol said 29-year-old Heather deGroot was traveling southbound on I-25 at the same time the victim was crossing the road by the Mesa Ridge Parkway exit (exit 132). After colliding, the Jeep went into the median. No one inside the Jeep was hurt.

I-25 was closed for several hours and reopened before 5 a.m. Monday.  

The victim's identity will not be released until her family is notified.
