(CBS4) – Colorado State Patrol says a truck hauling vehicles overturned on Interstate 70 at the bottom of Floyd Hill. The crash happened where I-70 and U.S. 6 intersect.
CSP says five vehicles fell off the truck’s trailer; one went off the overpass and landed on U.S. 6.
Both east and westbound lanes on U.S. Highway 6 between Colorado Highway 119 and Interstate 70 were closed Sunday afternoon. The Colorado Department of Transportation says the closure was in response to a safety concern.

CSP says the bridge over U.S. 6 is in tact, but inspections will be required. The driver was hurt, but it’s not clear the extent of their injuries.
It’s not clear when the closure will be lifted.
