Snowy Weather Leads To Crashes, I-70 Closure East Of Denver

(CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation closed part of Interstate 70 east of Denver Saturday afternoon because of tough driving conditions. Colorado State Patrol responded to a rollover near Airpark Road.

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.

Wind becomes a concern Saturday evening as the snow tapers off.

It’s not clear when CDOT will reopen the highway.
