Rollover accidents keep Colorado troopers busy
A Craig man was cited for careless driving Monday morning after he lost control of his coal truck on Routt County Road 27 in Hayden, causing the truck to roll.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tonya Cowan said William Jones, 58, was driving a “belly dump truck” loaded with coal at about 8 a.m. Monday when he lost control while rounding a corner.
Jones was not injured but was taken to the hospital for a check-up. He was released Monday.
Traffic was diverted for several hours while crews cleaned up the spilled coal and towed Jones’ truck, Cowan said.
Jones was cited for careless driving, Cowan said.
Also Monday, Colorado State Patrol troopers responded to an accident at about 3 p.m. on C.R. 129 near Cullen’s Corner, where a sports utility vehicle rolled several times. The vehicle came to rest on the driver’s side, police said.
An unidentified woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for unknown injuries.
