Emergency workers were extricating one driver from the cabin of a semi-tractor trailer after a chain-reaction crash involving three semis on westbound Interstate 70 near Deer Trail, authorities say.
The first crash happened at 2:24 a.m. Monday when a semi-tractor trailer driver drove his truck into the rear end of another semi, said Trooper Gary Cutler, spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol.
A third semi crashed into debris strewn across the highway, Cutler said.
Two of the semi drivers were not injured, he said. But one of them had to be extricated from his truck. His condition was not known as of 6 a.m.
At least one lane of westbound I-70 was closed.
