LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– Strong winds blew over two semi trucks on Interstate 25 near the Colorado-Wyoming state line on Tuesday morning.
Those strong winds forced the Colorado State Patrol to close the interstate between the Colorado-Wyoming state line and Cheyenne, Wyo. for more than an hour on Tuesday. I-25 reopened just before noon.
The red semi truck blew over in the northbound lanes of I-25 just three miles south of the Wyoming state line.
The second semi blew over in the southbound lanes of I-25 nine miles south of the Wyoming border.
The driver of one semi was injured when the semi blew over. His injuries are not serious.
It is unclear the condition of the other driver.
Strong gusts of wind were measured on Monday and Tuesday. There was a Red Flag Warning in Northern Colorado on Tuesday.
