Elk Range bluegrass band entertains folks stranded in the snow on Colorado's I-70

Colorado-based bluegrass band Elk Range entertained folks who were stranded on Interstate 70 on Saturday, January 28 after an accident closed the highway for five hours. CBS News Colorado explains:

When members of the Elk Range group broke out their instruments and broke into song, bored drivers and passengers got into the groove.

A 10-mile stretch of Interstate 70 was shut down at about 6:15 a.m. Saturday when a tractor-trailer jackknifed at mile marker 155. Traffic was stopped both directions and detoured at Wolcott and Eagle exits. 

But travelers caught between the towns had to sit out the closure.
