MORRISON, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado State Patrol has closed a highway west of Morrison after a truck carrying wastewater overturned.

Trooper Josh Lewis says the accident occurred before noon Friday, spilling about 300 gallons of hazardous waste near a creek.

Lewis says both lanes of Colorado Highway 74 are closed until the spill can be cleaned up.
