DENVER -- All northbound lanes of Interstate 25 were closed at Interstate 70 early Tuesday morning for more than three hours after a semi-tractor trailer rolled over.

The driver and a passenger of the semi were transported to the hospital but were not seriously injured in the accident, which happened just after 3 a.m. Traffic was being diverted onto Interstate 70 and caused major delays for the morning commute.

The interstate was reopened about 6:40 a.m.

Video shows a police officer using a baton to break out a back window of the semi. The officer and several other people pull a passenger out of the truck. The man can be seen shaking his head, then walking away with the help of a paramedic.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, though there was a large pool of standing water, likely from heavy overnight rain, on the highway. It appears an SUV was also banged up in the wreck, but it's unclear how it was involved.
