Witnesses said that no one could stop because of the icy conditions on the road. A winter storm brought snow to that area of Wyoming and into Colorado on Sunday.

What happened leading up to the multi-vehicle crash is being investigated. There is no estimate on when that section of I-80 will reopen.
