KUSA - A truck carrying Michelob Ultra rolled over on Loveland Pass Tuesday morning, leaving three people seriously injured and closing the highway for hours. 

Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue says the truck crashed into another vehicle and then overturned on the runaway truck ramp while it was coming down from Loveland Pass. 

All three people who were hurt were taken to the hospital. There's no word yet on their conditions. 

Drivers had to take the Eisenhower Tunnel as a detour while US 6 was closed in both directions over the pass. The road reopened shortly after 6 p.m.
