AURORA, Colo. -- More than a dozen vehicles were involved in a pileup on an icy road on Friday morning.

The Colorado State Patrol, the Aurora Police Department, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office and the Colorado Department of Transportation responded to the scene on South Parker Road just south of East Belleview Avenue after 6 a.m.

The Colorado State Patrol said 18 vehicles, including a school bus, were involved. No children were on the bus, a Cherry Creek Schools spokeswoman said.

Some injuries were reported, but they reported to be minor. Southbound Parker Road was closed at East Quincy Avenue but it reopened about 7:50 a.m.

Law enforcement moved the vehicles to a nearby field where drivers could exchange insurance information and have them towed.

For a second consecutive day, roads were icy across the Denver metro area. Douglas and Arapahoe counties were on accident alert because of the conditions.

Some crashes were reported but not as many as Thursday.
