Roll-over Accident Closes U.S. 50

The Pueblo Chieftain is reporting that U.S. 50 was closed for about four hours on Thursday following a roll-over accident. According to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Bill Ellis, the accident happened at about 6:40 a.m. when a semitrailer hauling hay entered a corner at an unsafe speed and rolled onto it’s left side, blocking the highway. The tractor-trailer driver was not injured in the accident. The highway was eventually reopened at about 1:30 p.m.

  1. This accident could have been a lot worse if there had been other vehicles involved. Glad to see that nobody was seriously injured in the crash.
