LA JUNTA, Colo. (CBS4) – A snowcat had to be used to rescue stranded motorists on Colorado’s Eastern Plains early Tuesday morning.

Emergency teams rescued two drivers. They got stuck on a county road 50 miles south of La Junta during a blizzard.

On the way back the snowcat broke down, so three other snowcats fought the conditions to rescue the snowcat crew and the two drivers.
