A 104-car pile up in Colorado killed one person along Interstate 25 on Mar. 1. The collision occurred just before 10:40 a.m. as the pile of vehicles came to a halt, stopping traffic across all lanes.

Witness Travis Rosenbloom, who was not injured in the crash, says traffic was flowing despite the low visibility when the crash happened.

“People [were] trying to hit their brakes to come to a sudden stop [and] started smashing into each other in front of me, directly to my right, and behind me,” he said. “I was in the far left lane. I personally saw at least six cars smash into each other. Luckily I was over far enough to not get hit.”

Twenty people were hospitalized as a result of the pileup. The victims are said to be adults and children, according to Denver Health Chief Paramedic Scott Bookman.

The crash is made up of two pileups within the area of I-25 along Broadway to Logan Street.

CDOT says northbound I-25 is closed at Logan as a result of the crash.

It is expected to be closed for at least three hours.

People who were not injured were transported by RTD bus to give statements to investigators.
