Rescue crews investigated, but no one was in the car. A body was later found in the creek nearby.

Due to the high and fast-moving water, it was decided to leave the car in there until conditions were safer.

Colorado State Patrol tweeted Monday that the highway will be closed at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday while the removal is conducted.

It is unknown how long that will take, but they will post updates on their account when the road reopens.
