ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. – Three people were transported to St. Anthony Hospital after their Hummer H2 was forced off the road by a second vehicle while traveling northbound on Sheridan Blvd.

The Hummer became wedged under the I-76 overpass. Both the driver and a passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle. Their conditions haven’t been released.

A third passenger was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, the driver of a Toyota Rav4 crossed the lane of traffic and hit the Hummer H2, causing both drivers to lose control of their SUVs.

The Toyota left the roadway and “rolled an undetermined number of times,” according to a state patrol statement. The three occupants of the Toyota sustained minor injuries, but were not taken to the hospital.

Alcohol is being considered as a contributing factor for both drivers.
