Police said inoperable vehicles and cars left behind after the drivers were transported to the hospital will be towed to Lot C at Empower Field.

“Officers are working to clear a path for other involved motorists to leave. We appreciate everyone’s patience,” the department tweeted.

A police spokesperson said there were no reports of deaths, and injuries appear to be minor.

The Denver metro area saw 2 to 4 inches of snow, the National Weather Service said. The agency cautioned motorists to be aware of icy and snow-covered roads from temperatures dropping.
