Title
300 Block University Drive
Location
On the above date and time the Colorado Springs Police and Fire Departments were dispatched to a report of an explosion at an apartment on the 300 block of University Drive. Upon arrival, first responders found a 51 year old male outside of the apartment complex, who admitted he lived inside the apartment where the explosion occurred.

The investigation revealed that a total of two people were inside the residence at the time of the explosion, and not injured. In addition to the above mentioned subject, a 29 year old male was present at the time of the explosion.

Evidence suggests the involved parties were in the process of making hash oil, a high potency extract of marijuana, using butane fuel.

Investigators believe that during this process, the butane fuel ignited causing a significant explosion.

The 51 year old resident was arrested on suspicion of unlawful possession, and manufacturing of a controlled substance; offenses relating to marijuana and marijuana concentrate; keeping, maintaining, controlling, renting, or making available property for unlawful distribution or manufacture of controlled substances; and reckless endangerment.

Roadways Throughout Colorado Springs
Location
Through the late afternoon hours and moving into the evening hours, reports from several major intersections across the city have come in identifying that signal lights have stopped cycling. With thick patches fog rolling through the north and eastern sections of town, sensors for cross traffic are not being triggered and lights are not cycling normally.

Until the fog dissipates, this problem will likely continue in these areas of dense fog overnight.

Drivers are reminded that if they are stuck at a traffic signal that will not provide them with a green light right of way, they should wait until they are sure that the light is not cycling and then are allowed to treat their light as a yellow caution. This requires that the driver still yield to any vehicles that have the right of way (green light). Driver's who observe these conditions should contact the CSPD Communications Center non-emergency number at 444-7000 to report the problem. City Traffic Signals or CDOT will be promptly notified and can reset intersections.

Due to dangerous driving conditions due to dense fog, the CSPD strongly encourages drivers to stay off of the roadways until conditions improve. If you are forced to drive in these conditions, please slow down and drive defensively with extreme caution.

The Colorado Revised Statute that governs driver's actions when traffic signals are malfunctioning is as follows:

42-4-612. When signals are inoperative or malfunctioning

(1) Whenever a driver approaches an intersection and faces a traffic control signal which is inoperative or which remains on steady red or steady yellow during several time cycles, the rules controlling entrance to a through street or highway from a stop street or highway, as provided under section 42-4-703, shall apply until a police officer assumes control of traffic or until normal operation is resumed. In the event that any traffic control signal at a place other than an intersection should cease to operate or should malfunction as set forth in this section, drivers may proceed through the inoperative or malfunctioning signal only with caution, as if the signal were one of flashing yellow.

(2) Whenever a pedestrian faces a pedestrian-control signal as provided in section 42-4-802 which is inoperative or which remains on "Don't Walk" or "Wait" during several time cycles, such pedestrian shall not enter the roadway unless the pedestrian can do so safely and without interfering with any vehicular traffic.

(3) Any person who violates any provision of this section commits a class A traffic infraction.
