Fatal crash closes stretch of I-270 Thursday morning

A fatal crash involving at least three vehicles on Interstate 270 has shut down the road going west at U.S. 36, and officials say to avoid using the road altogether.

According to Colorado State Patrol, the collision, which occurred before 5 a.m. on Thursday, has killed one person. That person died on the scene while another was transported to the hospital.

There is no estimated time for when the crash would clear and the interstate could reopen.

Authorities are working to determine if all three vehicles were involved in the same crash or if two separate crashes occurred in the same location.

Freezing drizzle on Wednesday and cold overnight temperatures have caused a rough drive Thursday morning.
