DENVER, CO : 1 death, several crashes with significant injuries on Interstate 25 north of Denver and Interstate 70 in Aurora on Tuesday, 26th January 2021

A winter storm caused difficult driving conditions across Colorado on Tuesday afternoon, leading to closures and delays on Interstate 25 north of Denver and Interstate 70 in Aurora. Eastbound I-70 reopened about 5:15 p.m. after a crash involving serious injuries forced closures at Tower Road, Aurora Police (APD) said. Longmont Public Safety responded to a fatal car crash about 3:30 p.m. on Highway 287, south of Park Ridge Avenue. Deputy Chief of Police Services Jeffrey Satur said a Cadillac sedan was traveling southbound when it lost control and started a side spin traveling into the northbound lanes of Highway 287. The Cadillac was struck broadside, in the driver's side of the car, by a Honda Pilot traveling in the northbound lanes of Highway 287. The driver of the Cadillac, a 34-year-old Berthoud resident, died as a result of the crash, Satur said in a news release. Satur said five occupants of the Honda Pilot, all residents of Fort Collins, were transported to an area hospital with a variety of injuries and are expected to survive. Icy road conditions and speed are being investigated as possible factors, Satur said. A crash south of Loveland led to the closure of the northbound lanes of I-25 as well as some of the southbound lanes for hours. This stretch of interstate has since reopened. Multiple semi-trucks were involved in that crash, and photos shared by CSP show some vehicles toppled sideways and on the median. Source
