Two car crashes caused long delays for commuters trying to get into Steamboat Springs from the west Tuesday morning. One happened when the driver of a sedan suffered a medical emergency and then swerved into oncoming traffic, crashing into an SUV headed the other way. Another crash happened when a car rear-ended another near Dream Island Plaza.

A Steamboat business owner faces multiple felony charges after allegedly locking two police officers inside part of his downtown restaurant Sunday. 34-year-old Kyle Love owns Ciao Gelato and Steamboat Smokehouse. The incident stemmed from an argument of two co-owners of a business within the same building. Police were called. A judge issued a warrant, and officers arrested Love and booked him into the Routt County Jail on Monday. He posted out on bond and is waiting for a scheduled court date.
