The accident happened in the eastbound lanes of I-270 between the Quebec Street exit and Interstate 70. The roadway was closed down for several hours during the busy morning commute while police investigated the crash.

At 8:20 a.m., westbound lanes had reopened on I-270.

There were at least four vehicles and a semi truck involved in the crash. One vehicle was severely damaged, but no word on if anyone was transported to the hospital.

Denver police asked drivers to avoid the area, and take I-25 as an alternate route. Several other crashes along I-70 were contributing to backups in the area.
