Flipped-over semi causes big problems

-A A +A

Commerce City police are urging people to avoid on the on-ramp from southbound U.S. Highway 85 to eastbound I-270.

The cause is a semi-tractor trailer that rolled over. It happened shortly before 1 p.m. Nov. 17.

South Adams County firefighters and medical personnel were able to pull the driver out of the cab. The driver has minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved. Authorities don't suspect alcohol played a part.

Authorities said the trailer was full of cargo at the time of the crash, but they haven't said what the cargo is.

We'll update later.
