Dump truck with dump raised crashes into I-70 overpass

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The Colorado State Patrol says a dump truck driver was seriously injured after the raised dump on his truck slammed into an overpass on Interstate 70.

The accident happened Tuesday night near Dotsero as 53-year-old Steven Bounds was headed east on the highway.

The State Patrol says the dump broke off the truck and the truck stopped about 300 feet later.
