Five ambulance crews from Gunnison and Chaffee counties have responded to U.S Highway 50 in the Monarch Pass area following reports of two separate single-vehicle crashes.
Authorities say up to eight people were inside a van that plunged off the road and went about 200 feet down an embankment.
Dispatchers say all of the occupants reported being injured in the
accident. In another crash about 8 miles away on U.S. 50, a vehicle with
four people inside went off the road.
There was no immediate word on injuries. The causes of the accidents are under investigation.
