100-Car Pileup Closes Denver Street After First Snow
- The pile-up was one of several multi-vehicle collisions in the city.
- The Denver metro area received 2 to 5 inches of snow overnight.
Denver’s first snow of the season led to accidents across the city, including one pileup involving at least 100 cars.
Sixth Avenue was closed in both directions between N Klamath Street and N Federal Boulevard early Friday morning about 100 cars collided into each other, Denver police said in a tweet.
Some people were taken to hospitals with injuries, but none appeared to be life-threatening, police spokesman Doug Schepman said. said Denver Post.
The cars were towed to Empower Field.
Police declared a “collision alert,” meaning the amount of wreckage was too great to respond to individually. Drivers involved in accidents where no one was injured, the cars were not blocking the roads, no one was injured and everyone involved had proof of driver’s license and insurance said they did not call for help.
The Denver metro area received 2 to 5 inches of snow overnight, with temperatures dropping into the mid-20s.
Slippery, icy roads also led to several other accidents.
