BAILEY, Colo. -- A semitruck barreled into Aspen Peak Cellars winery early Tuesday morning, destroying the building and the business operation being declared a "total loss," the company said.

The Colorado State Patrol said the truck was traveling southbound on Highway 285 when it approached a curve at the bottom of a hill.

The truck went across the northbound lanes and off the left side of the road, slamming into the winery, the CSP said.

"Nobody was in the building," Aspen Peak Cellars wrote in a Facebook post. Thank God!"

The crash caused broken water pipes and a broken gas line, and wine was flowing into the creek.

A hazardous materials team was called out to contain diesel fuel and oil from the truck, the CSP said.

The driver, a 34-year-old man from Florida, was taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood with serious injuries, the CSP said. It's not known if the man will face any charges.
