SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — The westbound lanes of Interstate 70 reopened about 2:30 p.m. Monday after a multi-vehicle crash, according to Colorado State Patrol (CSP).

About 7:10 a.m., CSP received a call about a crash on I-70 near mile marker 207, involving two semi-trucks and a pickup truck, according to CSP. That's east of Silverthorne.

One person was injured and transported to the hospital, said Sgt. Troy Kessler with CSP.

One of the semi-trucks rolled over and spilled its load of steel pipes, Kessler said.

A detour around the crash was set up along U.S. 6, over Loveland Pass while the westbound lanes were closed for cleanup, according to Kessler.

Crews had estimated that the lane closures would last a minimum of three hours, Kessler said.
