– A traveler at Denver International Airport told CBS4 the underground trains at the airport were stuck just after 7 a.m. The airport said in a tweet the trains are running into technical issues.

The issue was fixed for a brief time during the morning but then apparently recurred after 10 a.m.

– An A Line train collided with a person at 40th and Airport Road, according to Aurora police. That person was taken to the hospital and their condition wasn’t known. As a result, the train wasn’t running between Peoria and 61st/Pena Boulevard for approximately two hours. Shuttle buses were being brought in to cover the gap.

– Four vehicles and a semi were involved in a crash on Interstate 270 near Quebec earlier Wednesday morning. There were no serious injuries, but traffic was backed up on I-270 all morning.
