A tractor-trailer rig carrying a dry cement mix turned over at the intersection of U.S. Highway 85 and 120th Avenue, causing traffic delays for almost four hours on Thursday, March 23.

The trailer was headed southbound on Highway 85 and took the westbound turn onto 120th Avenue too quickly, causing the vehicle to turn over a little before 4 p.m., police said.

The cement mix spilled when the vehicle tipped, but it was non-hazardous, according to Officer Greg Sadar at the Commerce City police department.
