Thursday accidents:

A rollover accident was reported East of Woodmen and Powers. The driver says his car lost traction because of the icy road, then slid into the median and flipped causing a chain reaction. One woman says she pulled over to dial 911, then her SUV was side-swiped by a van driving by.

In another instance, the overpass at Union Blvd. and Austin Bluffs was closed west bound and east bound due to icy conditions.

Up north in Castle Rock, major crashes were reported along I-25 due to those icy conditions as well. Multiple vehicles were involved with injuries.
