DENVER — A 22-vehicle crash on Interstate 70 in Denver forced an hours-long closure of the highway and sent multiple people to the hospital Sunday morning.

The wreck was reported in the westbound lanes of I-70 from Colorado to York just before 6:30 a.m. According to a spokesperson for the Denver Police Department, it was not one giant chain crash, but rather three clusters of vehicles that all crashed within a stretch of I-70.

The highway reopened just before 9 a.m.

Although this wreck has cleared, people are urged to stay off the roads this morning if possible.
