Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado State Patrol says one person was killed in Colorado Springs and five others were injured as drivers struggled with black ice on the road and record low temperatures around the state.
Authorities did not release details about the person killed Saturday evening in Colorado Springs. Among the five injured were two Colorado Springs officers who were investigating a crash on Interstate 25. The State Patrol says a tanker truck crashed into their patrol cars.
