Tractor-trailer rolls off overpass above I-70 near Strasburg

STRASBURG, Colo. - The Colorado State Patrol says a tractor-trailer has rolled over and slid off an overpass above Interstate-70 westbound near the Strasburg exit.

The wreck occurred just after 2:30 p.m., CSP troopers said.

Two occupants of the semi-truck suffered minor injuries.

Troopers told 7NEWS crews that distracted driving is likely the cause of the wreck, and that the truck would have jumped the whole overpass if it wasn't fully loaded.

Motorists in the area were urged to use caution as crews work to remove the truck.

Because the truck was carrying a full load of goods, troopers said the process of unloading and removing the truck from the overpass will take some time.
