JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– Icy roads and snowy conditions, combined with drivers traveling too fast for the conditions, are likely to blame for a series of crashes on Highway 285 in Aspen Park on Wednesday morning.

Just after 7 a.m. two RTD buses with a total of 30 passengers were involved in a crash with seven vehicles. One person was rushed to the hospital. No one on board the bus was injured.
