Police say there were multiple separate crashes in the general area.
At least one person was taken to a hospital, but it’s not clear how they’re doing, or how seriously anyone else was hurt.
The closure spanned, at one point, between Airpark Road and U.S. 24 near Limon. CDOT announced at around 5:30 p.m. that westbound closure was extended from Kansas to Denver.
A shelter has been opened in Burlington, CO at the Community Center (340 S. 14th Street).
