Jackknifed RTD buses spotted near Colorado Capitol

The Regional Transportation District said Denver bus and light rail passengers should expect delays due to a winter storm.

KUSA – There have been no reported injuries after multiple RTD buses jackknifed and were involved in crashes Monday morning in downtown Denver. 

One of the buses struck a pole on Broadway in front of the Colorado State Capitol. RTD spokesperson Lisa Trujillo said the driver was trying to avoid colliding with a vehicle. 

9NEWS Reporter Liz Kolatik saw an RTD that slid and became stuck off East 13th Avenue near Speer Boulevard.

Another photo showed multiple RTD buses in the road near East 15th Avenue and Sherman Street.

RTD tweeted earlier Monday that buses and trains are “continuing to experience delays due to weather.” Those delays were 5 to 30 minutes, and mainly on the Flatiron Flyer due to congestion on US 36, Trujillo said. 

"I think the storm hit and maybe people weren't prepared," Trujillo said. "Personally I think we were expecting a little less snow than people received." 

When an RTD driver is involved in a crash, Trujillo said it is investigated by the Denver Police Department. 

Around 5 inches of snow fell in Denver right during the commute, leading to dozens of crashes and accident alerts in numerous metro area cities. 

The storm is expected to leave the area by early Monday afternoon.
