Four people were seriously injured following two wrecks that caused delays for commuters in Colorado Springs Tuesday morning.

A 33-year-old pregnant woman and her son were flown by helicopter to a local hospital after a crash at Highway 94 and Marksheffel Road about 5:45 a.m., according to Colorado Springs police.

Two drivers involved in the wreck were also seriously injured and taken to local hospitals, police said.

Most of the intersection was closed until 9:30 a.m. and traffic was rerouted through Space Village Avenue.

Colorado State patrol also reported that a two-car wreck happened about 6:30 a.m. at Highway 115 and Titus Boulevard, near Fort Carson Gate 5, blocking the turn lane into the military base.

One person was taken to Evans Army Hospital with moderate injuries when an SUV and a Toyota Corolla collided, state patrol said.

The crash was cleared and all lanes reopened as of 8 a.m., according to state patrol.
