Lake Dillon Fire Rescue says one accident Monday on westbound I-70 at Silverthorne involved 25 vehicles and sent three people to a hospital. Rescue officials say another accident on eastbound I-70 near Frisco involved 29 vehicles.
No serious injuries were reported. The area is about 70 miles west of Denver.
The adverse conditions temporarily closed westbound I-70 from Georgetown to Silverthorne, eastbound I-70 from Frisco to Silverthorne, and eastbound I-70 at Vail Pass. Westbound I-70 also was closed briefly at Floyd Hill because of accidents.
The accidents came as ski resorts along I-70 reported fresh snow. Loveland reported a foot of new snow Monday.
