WELD COUNTY, Colo. -- Five people were killed in five separate accidents in northern Colorado on Wednesday, the Colorado State Patrol said.
Investigators did not say what caused the crashes because the reports weren't complete late Wednesday night.
A spokesman said highways in the region were treacherous when freezing drizzle and fog moved in, coating roads with ice.
About 3:10 p.m., a woman died in a single-vehicle rollover crash involving a GMC SUV at Highway 392 and Weld County Road 45 east of Lucerne in Weld County.
