Air Force Academy explains traffic jams that marred NHL game

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colorado (AP) The Air Force Academy is blaming car accidents and ill-prepared drivers for traffic jams that were so bad before and after the NHL's Stadium Series game at Falcon Stadium that some fans didn't enter until the third period.

Several thousand fans among the sellout crowd of 43,574 arrived late to the Los Angeles Kings' 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night. With fans complaining on social media and in interviews that they missed much of the game and a concert by country singer Sam Hunt during the first intermission, the Air Force released a statement saying fans had been warned aplenty to get to the game early and that numerous accidents on Interstate 25 were partly to blame for the delays in getting to the game.

The academy said a man died in an accident at the base's north gate after the game but gave no information on how the man died. Traffic was rerouted out of the south gate with the rest of the automobiles, creating hours-long waits for many of the fans leaving the football stadium.
