Weather-Related Car Accidents
There have been multiple injuries after a number of weather-related car accidents across the Denver Metro area, according to 9 News. Some ramps were closed at the interchange of I-70 and I-225, in order to reroute traffic to other roads. One of the ramps at the interchange of I-25 and C-470 was also closed after an accident there.
