Interstate 40 westbound at Coors is open again Tuesday afternoon after two rollover accidents had shut down almost all lanes of traffic on either side of the highway.

The original accident occurred on the westbound lanes, and as a result of that accident, another rollover occurred on the eastbound lanes, according to APD spokesperson Tanner Tixier.
