Rocky Mountain region blasted by early snowstorm

Colorado and Wyoming are waking up to an icy, snowy fall morning that has closed highways and left drivers facing treacherous conditions.

Interstate 25 in parts of northern Colorado and southern Wyoming were closed Saturday morning. Interstate 70 was closed to westbound traffic at the Eisenhower Tunnel. The cities of Denver and Thornton were placed on accident alert.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says there were more than two dozen accidents in metro Denver Saturday morning. Game 3 of the National League playoffs between the Colorado Rockies and the Philadelphia Phillies was postponed to tonight at 8:07 MT.
