FRISCO, Colo. -- Interstate 70 in the mountains is back open after an avalanche shut down the highway Sunday evening.

No one was injured and no cars were trapped, Colorado State Patrol says.

The closure lasted around three hours: eastbound at Vail, westbound at Frisco.

One driver captured it on video in his rear-view mirror.

There was an earlier, separate avalanche in the same area that did not close down the highway.
