Westbound Interstate 70 has reopened over Vail Pass after a Colorado State patrol trooper was involved in a crash.

A tweet from the CSP in Eagle showed the trooper's car collided with a truck at mile marker 190.

The Colorado State Patrol said the trooper was investigating a separate crash when his vehicle was hit.

An ambulance was called to check out the Trooper. No one else was hurt.

A photo showed that while it looks sunny in the area, the highway appeared to be icy in spots.

The highway reopened around 1:15 p.m.

WB I-70 was closed over Vail Pass earlier in the day after another crash.
