Fatal rollover closes I-70
Crash happened near Wolcott
A 61 year-old man has died after his semi rolled over on I-70 Wednesday afternoon.
Colorado State Patrol says the accident occurred around 3pm, when the man's truck drifted off the left side of the road, over-corrected, and then rolled onto its left side.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Westbound lanes of I-70 remain closed for recovery and an investigation and are not expected to reopen until at least 7pm.
The truck, owned by Navajo Trucking, had been hauling beer from Golden.
