According to the Colorado State Patrol the truck was traveling westbound at approximately 5:30 p.m. when the driver said his brakes overheated and he lost control of them.

The driver went onto a median to avoid hitting any of the slowing traffic on the highway and the truck fell between the overpasses onto the road below.
