SILVERTHORNE, Colo. (CBS4) – Dash cam video caught one of Wednesday’s accidents on I-70 as it happened.
The video was shot by ski / airport shuttle driver Rainey Schuyler, who posted it to YouTube and shared it with CBS4.
Just before the accident happens, a truck passes Schuyler, who comments about how the other driver was mad at him for going to slow.
As a result of this accident and others, as well as near whiteout conditions, the Colorado State Patrol closed the eastbound lanes of I-70 at Silverthorne.
At least 25 vehicles were involved in the accidents, including CBS4’s Mountain Newsroom reporter Matt Kroschel.
Conditions, Kroschel said, were like a complete ice rink.
There were no serious injuries reported as a result of the accidents.
