Recommended Posts



SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — An avalanche came down near the Vail Pass summit, trapping a tow truck driver and closing Interstate 70 in both directions between Copper Mountain and Vail.


The slide occurred shortly after midnight. About 20 minutes after, crews reopened eastbound lanes of I-70, following multiple crashes.


The driver of the tow truck was OK, according to a tweet from Colorado State Patrol.


The slide covered all westbound lanes of I-70 about three miles west of the Vail Pass summit.
