DENVER — The coroner’s office says a Stillwater woman was the person killed in a massive weekend traffic pileup near Denver.

In a statement Tuesday, the Denver medical examiner’s office identified the victim as 61-year-old Rebecca Newkirk of Stillwater.

Authorities say another 30 people were injured in the chain of accidents on Interstate 25 that occurred as a band of heavy snow moved through south Denver on Saturday.

Police say 104 vehicles were involved in crashes along a roughly 2-mile stretch of the highway.
