Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Traffic was backed up for more than an hour Friday evening after a cement truck lost part of its load on I-25.
It happened in the northbound lanes around 4:30 p.m. at W. Cimarron St.
Police say three cars hit each other in the left lane and shoulder when they were not able to stop quickly enough. The cement truck was able to stop before hitting anything, but spilled wet cement onto the center and right lanes.
It took about an hour and a half for crews to clean things up.
While the cleanup and investigation of that accident was happening, a second accident happened in the southbound lanes.
Police say a vehicle couldn't make the turn off of W. Cimarron onto southbound I-25 and went across all three lanes of traffic, rolled over and hit the cement barrier.
That accident closed the center and left lane for about an hour.
Thankfully, police say no one was seriously injured in any of the accidents.
