(DENVER) — At least one person was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 25 in Denver.
According to ABC’s Denver affiliate, KMGH, at least one semitrailer and 30 cars were involved in the chain of accidents Saturday morning. Traffic was backed up for over a mile and sections of Interstate 70 were closed. The snow-covered roadway is believed to have been a factor in the crash.
Police and fire personnel were tending to the injured, though no count was immediately made public.
A number of cars were stuck perpendicular to the roadway. No estimate was given on when the highway might be able to reopen.
