Thursday's winter weather caused traffic problems from Denver to Colorado Springs, including a massive pile-up on eastbound 6th Ave. in Denver, over I-25.

Denver Police estimate at least 50 cars involved in that crash, and say some injuries were reported but none were life-threatening.

Major issues also along I-25 north of Colorado Springs in the Gap.

Northbound traffic was moving very slowly near Upper Lake Gulch Road due to multiple crashes amid icy and slippery conditions.

There were also reports of several other crashes Thursday night, including a 10-car pileup on South Academy between I-25 and B Street.
