Travel conditions throughout Colorado snarled by snow

DENVER - Typical winter driving conditions slowed traffic across the Front Range Saturday morning.

Several inches of snow fell, with highs that began in the 20s dropped throughout the day. Roads are snowy and snowpacked, causing drivers to drive at lower speeds.

On well-traveled roads, the lanes were visible but on roads closer to the Foothills, lane recognition was a problem.

Aurora, Boulder, Broomfield and parts of Denver were on accident alert Saturday afternoon.

By 3 p.m., Denver Police had more than 100 accident reports filed.

At 3:34 p.m., a State Trooper was injured while investigating a crash on Highway 6 near mile marker 269 in Gilpin County.

Off Interstate-70 near the Morrison exit Golden firefighters responded to a rollover accident at 7 p.m. Two people were taken to the hospital.

Earlier in the day, a semi rollover closed I-25 near Fort Carson for several hours as crews tried to clean up the mess.

CDOT advised motorists to use caution and slower speeds when traveling through the metro area and into the mountains.
