CSP tells CBS4 they received a report of an “incendiary device” inside a Kia SUV. It is not clear what investigators found, if anything, or if the driver will face charges.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s bomb squad responded and deemed the area safe.

CSP says people who spoke with a person associated with the vehicle called 911.


CSP says westbound drivers used Highway 6 over Loveland Pass as an alternative.
