DENVER — Multiple cars were involved in a crash along Interstate 25 and Logan Street Saturday morning, killing one person, police said.
Police said in a tweet that the crash, which happened around 11 a.m., involved over 30 vehicles in the northbound lanes and closed I-25.
Denver Health said on Twitter that they received multiple patients from the crash.
During a media briefing at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Scott Bookman, a chief paramedic at Denver Heath, said 20 individuals had been transported to the hospital plus one fatality.
He added that paramedics have stayed on the scene to see if there are more injuries and to keep involved parties on buses to stay warm at the accident site.
A Saturday snow storm brought freezing temperatures and a fresh inch of snow to the metro area.
Traffic along the highway was at a standstill while the crash was cleared.
Travel along Interstate 70 in the mountains was also difficult Saturday as poor driving conditions caused several crashes. CDOT said drivers could expect extremely long delays through Summit, Clear Creek and Eagle counties.
