GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – Officials in Clear Creek County have put a temporary ban on tubing and other types of recreation in Clear Creek in the Golden area after a car crash in which at least one person died.

Officials said the vehicle flipped off the road and went into the creek. They determined one person in the vehicle was dead and they were checking to see if there was another body in the car.
