Wet and icy roads are giving drivers all kinds of problems on Interstate 70.

Colorado State Patrol says just after 5:30 Sunday morning, four cars traveling eastbound on I-70 spun out of control as they drove across a bridge at mile marker 96 near Silt.

Officials say roads in the area were wet and the bridges were icy.

As authorities were investigating the crashes, another car driving down the interstate also lost control and hit a State Trooper's car.

The crashes and slick conditions forced officials to shut down both eastbound lanes of I-70 near Silt from 7:15am - 8:30am.

No injuries were reported in any of the crashes.
