Denver PD: total of 104 vehicles involved in deadly I-25 pileups

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."
