Firefighters worked to rescue drivers in Colorado after at least 80 vehicles crashed in a massive pileup along an icy overpass early Friday, Denver authorities said.

The crash happened shortly before 6 a.m. and left about a dozen people injured, most with minor injuries, according to the Denver Fire Department. Of those transported to the hospital, one driver’s condition was serious. No deaths were reported, said fire department captain J.D. Chism. 

“It’s just the weather conditions, when people are driving too fast,” Chism told USA TODAY.

Crews were clearing dozens of cars from the blocked-off east Denver roadway mid-morning after the crash.
