Cheyenne, Wy – A snowstorm and icy conditions led to a
pile-up on Interstate 25 south of Cheyenne this afternoon.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant Steven Townsend says 19 or 20
vehicles were involved, including three jackknifed semitrailers.
He says nine people were sent to United Medical Center-West, but
he believes none of their injuries was serious.
The crashes occurred just before four o'clock in the southbound
lanes of I-25, about two miles north of the Colorado state line.
Both southbound lanes were closed, along with one northbound
Traffic was being detoured on Terry Ranch Road to U-S Highway
85, which parallels the north-south interstate.
The cleanup is being complicated by snowfall, strong winds and
frigid temperatures -- and it's only going to get colder.
