    I am standing at the IHOP restaurant at the corner of I70 and Sterling Ave. the accident is so bad that police have been making all the drivers turn their vehicles around on the west bound side and head eastward to the nearest entrance ramp to exit the highway.

    I was about 100 yards away from the accident stuck in traffic. Apparently it was a roll over accident and a vehicle driving I-70 EB hit the median and rolled into oncoming traffic on I-70 WB. After waiting 1hr & 30min I noticed cars driving back towards the nearest ramp to get off the highway.
