Cars Spun Out & Abandoned As Winter Storm Grips Denver Metro Area

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – As a strong winter storm swept into the Denver metro area, some drivers couldn’t go toe to toe with Mother Nature. Many vehicles spun out Wednesday night.

Wheat Ridge police first said Kipling Street was shut down between 32nd and 38th Avenues because of snow packed roads. Then, police reported multiple spinouts on Interstate 70 going west at 58th Avenue.
