Victims in I-70 fuel truck rollover IDed
STRASBURG, Colo. — Colorado State Patrol released the identities of the two people who became trapped inside a semi-truck after it rolled over on Interstate 70 westbound Monday.
James Anderson, 45, of Ohio was the driver of the truck, CSP said.
He has since been released from Medical Center of Aurora.
CSP identified the passenger of the truck as 53-year-old Loretta Anderson, also of Ohio.
She sustained serious injuries from the rollover, but was reported to be in good condition as of Tuesday afternoon, CSP added.
The truck ran up an embankment about a mile west of Strasburg about 1:42 p.m. Monday, according to CSP. The incident caused some 150 gallons of fuel to spill from the trailer’s saddle tanks.
One lane of westbound I-70 was closed as a result of the accident.
