Denver (AP) - Another quick-moving spring snowstorm has set off traffic pileups and fatalities around Denver.
The storm was blamed for an 18-vehicle pileup Monday morning on eastbound Interstate 76 about 30 miles northeast of Denver. Weather caused another pileup on westbound Interstate 70 about 40 miles east of Denver, closing about 4 miles of the interstate. Colorado State Patrol said the morning snowstorm was responsible or at least three traffic fatalities in three separate crashes caused by drivers losing control on ice-slick roads. All three happened on state roads in suburban Denver during the morning commute.
