One person lost his life due to the accident while plenty others were left who needed medical care and to this the Denver Health says that they received several patients from Interstate 25.
Further details were revealed on the brief media briefing which took place soon after the accident at around 12:30 pm. The chief paramedic at Denver Heath, Scott Bookman, stated that 20 individuals who had been left harmed due to the accident were transported to the hospital plus one fatality. The paramedics remained on the accident site for a long time to ensure that everyone received proper medical attention. They were checking if more people needed help and also kept the involved parties on the busses warm since the weather reached a freezing point on Saturday morning after a snowstorm. While the crash was being cleared, the traffic remained at a standstill for a long time.
Reports of many crashes were also received from the Interstate 70 as the mountains made driving difficult in the aftermath of the snowstorm and drivers could expect extremely long delays through Summit, Clear Creek and Eagle counties.
