Tragically, the driver of a semi died Tuesday in Colorado when the truck overturned. Furthermore, the driver was traveling north on I-25 near exit 262 when the semi drifted west, and rolled to the left. As a result the tractor-trailer overturned, trapping the driver inside. Following the accident, the driver was extracted and rushed to a nearby hospital where they later died. Likewise, the identity of the driver will remain unknown until the family of the deceased is notified.
Luckily no other vehicles in the area were involved in a fatal accident. The semi was carrying a load of eggs at the time of the crash, and the highway was shut down for a matter of hours so the vehicle could be unloaded. An investigation into the cause of the accident is pending. Sadly this recent semi crash is the second fatal accident on I-25 yet this week. The other accident happened on Sunday when a vehicle crossed the centerline and hit a semi head-on. Unfortunately as fatal as many semi crashes are, the driver of the vehicle died at the scene.
