ASPEN, Colo. (CBS4) – Fresh snow drifts, some as high as three feet, forced road crews to close Independence Pass for a few hours Friday morning.
Several vehicles became stuck and a Colorado Department of Transportation snowplow went off the highway into a ditch.
CDOT spokeswoman Tracy Truelove told CBS4 more plows were headed up the pass to help rescue those drivers. She said there were no injuries reported.
The pass was closed in both directions for more than two hours.
CDOT reported six inches of fresh snow overnight hit the area.
