I-70 reopened after pile-up closes eastbound at Glenwood Springs
Dozens of cars were piled up on Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon early Monday morning, including a semi truck, as black ice caused several crashes of multiple vehicles and forced a closure of eastbound I-70 at Glenwood Springs Exit 116.
According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, as of 8:10 a.m. the highway was reopened.
Colorado State Patrol said there were no injuries reported from the crashes, but the road had to be shut down for less than an hour.
CSP said one of the drivers got out of his vehicle after crashing and, to avoid getting hit from more oncoming cars sliding down the roadway, he jumped off the bridge to about a 25 foot fall.
