View Comments

GEORGETOWN, Colo. (CBS4) – A semi rolled over on Interstate 70 in Colorado’s high country Friday morning, forcing a complete shutdown of the eastbound lanes for several hours.

A large amount of lumber on the road spilled out behind the semi, which tipped on its side and blocked all of the eastbound lanes.

The crash happened at approximately 8:10 a.m. near the Georgetown exit, and eastbound Interstate 70 was closed at the Silver Plume exit. A few hours later one lane was open again.

No one was seriously hurt in the crash.

So far it’s not clear why the truck fell over.

All eastbound lanes were reopened to traffic by 5 p.m. Friday.
