Wintry weather is suspected of being partly to blame for a 60-to-70-vehicle crash that shut down a portion of Interstate 25 in southern Colorado this morning.
No one was killed, but a handful of people were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries.
The crash occurred between Colorado Springs and Pueblo, near Young Hollow and Pinon. That forced authorities to close a four-mile stretch of I-25 in both directions.
Snow was falling in the area at the time.
Colorado Department of Transportation spokesman Paul Peterson says it's not clear exactly how the chain-reaction crash began, but says there's a strong possibility weather was a factor -- with slippery roadways having been reported.
Dozens of cars, trucks and semis had to be towed away.
All southbound and northbound lanes of I-25 were back open by about 12:45 this afternoon.
