Authorities closed the Frisco Scenic Overlook on westbound Interstate 70 for about two-and-a-half hours Wednesday as they investigated a man’s death at the popular pull-off site.

Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Pat Williams confirmed the deceased man was a white male in his 50s but would not release his name, pending the notification of the man’s family.

Williams said police were called to the overlook shortly after 9 a.m. to check on a black Ford Focus that had been left there for a few days. Inside the snow-covered car, they found the man’s body.

According to CSP, he was in the driver’s seat, and he was the only one inside the car.
