DENVER (AP) - Authorities say one person was killed and 30 others were injured in a giant pileup on Interstate 25 as a band of heavy snow moved through south Denver.

Police say 104 vehicles were involved in crashes along a roughly 2-mile stretch of highway on Saturday morning, and the northbound lanes were closed for hours. The interstate has since reopened.

The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/1eMFFC9 ) the snow had basically stopped by noon, but heavy snow had fallen for about 40 minutes starting at 10:30 a.m. The National Weather Service says it's part of the same storm moving across the West.

Meanwhile, the Colorado Transportation Department had closed the westbound lanes of a section of Interstate 70 west of Denver after treacherous road conditions triggered numerous accidents. Officials say traffic is still slow in the reopened lanes.
