A truck driver was transported to St. Mary's Hospital via Care Flight after crashing off of Highway 133 Thursday morning, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Troopers said the accident happened near McClure Pass around 10:00 a.m.
Two other people were involved in the accident and were transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Highway 133 was shut down near mile marker 40 for about an hour and a half while the C.S.P. investigated the crash.

According to First Warn 8 Meteorologist Dann Cianca, McClure Pass did see some snow Wednesday night, so it's possible icy conditions contributed to the accident.
