I personally saw at least six cars smash into each other. Luckily I was over far enough to not get hit.”

Twenty people were hospitalized as a result of the pileup. The victims are said to be adults and children, according to Denver Health Chief Paramedic Scott Bookman.

The crash was made up of two pileups within the area of I-25 along Broadway to Logan Street.
