No fewer than 104 vehicles were involved in a series of chain-reaction pileups on Interstate 25 in Denver Saturday, killing at least one person and injuring as many as 20 others. The first pileup happened around 11:00 a.m. Saturday along northbound I-25 at Logan Street. Denver Police now say as many as 60 vehicles were involved in that pileup. One person died in that chain-reaction crash. Subsequent pileups in generally the same area of I-25 between Broadway and University included more than 40 other vehicles. Northbound I-25 remains closed between Broadway and University for investigation and cleanup. All travel on northbound I-25 in the area is discouraged and traffic on alternate sidestreets is reported as near-gridlock Saturday afternoon. The Colorado Department of Transportation advises all travelers in the area of the pileups to expect "extremely long delays."
