Roughly 100 vehicles were involved in a crash on icy roads early Friday southwest of downtown Denver, but no one was seriously injured, per the AP. Injuries to drivers and passengers included broken bones, but nothing life-threatening, police spokesperson Doug Schepman told the Denver Post. Schepman said slick roads after snowfall Thursday night was the likely cause. Video of the aftermath showed drivers exiting their vehicles and walking down the road as tow trucks moved inoperable cars to a nearby lot. It was Denver's first snow of the season, notes the Weather Channel.
