COLORADO: Avalanche Caught On Camera Barreling Toward I-70

Family describes avalanche that shoved car across I-70

SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — Crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation were out Monday morning to survey the areas along Interstate 70 where two different avalanches were reported on Sunday. The two avalanches happened between Copper Mountain and Frisco in an area known as Officer's Gulch. Interstate 70 was closed down for several hours Sunday afternoon after one of those slides covered the highway in snow. Colorado State Patrol Trooper Schaefer said no vehicles were buried in the slide and no one was injured. However, Shaune and Tram Golemon shared video from their dash camera and said they were pushed off the roadway and into the median by the wall of the snow. Source
