A 30-car accident and bad weather were the cause of the closing of Interstate 70. The accident occurred around the city of Vail, Colorado.

Mindy Crane of the Colorado Department of Transportation states, “We were seeing blizzard conditions up in that area,” said Mindy Crane of the Colorado Department of Transportation. “We have not been able to find out if there are any injuries or fatalities.”

Most of the highway was forced to be shutdown at around 1:30 p.m. According to the National Weather Service there were scattered snow showers all over this particular city. Temperatures should be below freezing overnight, with wind chills making it feel like -15 degrees Fahrenheit. Skiers there can expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 35 degrees on Tuesday.

The Colorado state transportation agency reported other closures Monday afternoon along I-70 from the same weather system. That includes a stretch of eastbound I-70 northeast of Vail, between Frisco and Silverthorne, and a longer westbound part of the highway between Georgetown and Silverthorne because of “multiple accidents.”By 7 p.m., all parts of the highway in Colorado had reopened, according to the state Department of Transportation’s website.
