DENVER – A two-vehicle crash on the eastbound lanes of I-70 just east of the Eisenhower Tunnel left resulted in at least one person dead Tuesday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesperson.

The crash happened at around 8:34 a.m. at mile post 218, according to CSP Trooper Gabriel Moltrer. No details about what type of vehicles were involved or if anyone else was injured were immediately available.
