Traffic on Interstate 25 was halted for hours after at least two separate multi-vehicle pile-ups occurred on Sunday.
Winter weather made the situation more difficult as road closures and traffic jams plagued the highway.
Denver police tweeted that they were investigating a multi-vehicle crash around 4 p.m. on I-25 northbound. According to the Denver Fire Department, at least 50 vehicles were involved.
No serious injuries were reported.
Northbound lanes were closed as traffic was diverted to surface streets. The Denver Police Department issued crash alerts after crashes.
Hours earlier, another multi-vehicle crash occurred on southbound I-25 with at least 20 vehicles.
Five people were reportedly injured in the accident, but there were no fatalities, authorities said. The accident was weather-related and the lanes were closed by the crews.
