FRISCO, Colo. (AP) — An avalanche startled motorists and sent a plume of snow over a section of Interstate 70 in Colorado.
It happened Sunday in Ten Mile Canyon between Frisco and Copper Mountain.
Jacob Easton recorded it on video. He tells KDVR-TV he and his dad saw a “big white cloud” and noticed the avalanche. He says it was “exciting, but pretty nerve-wracking.”
Their windshield was covered with snow, but their vehicle was not trapped.
Colorado’s Transportation Department says it was a natural avalanche and not a controlled slide.
