Driver cited after rollover wreck on Hwy 82 near Aspen Glen; lanes reopened after investigation

Post Independent traffic alert news graphic

The 45-year-old male driver of a pickup truck that was involved in a rollover wreck in the median of Colorado Highway 82 near Aspen Glen early Friday afternoon ended up in the hospital, and also was issued a citation for the incident.

Colorado State Patrol PIO Trooper Gary Cutler said the single-vehicle wreck was reported on westbound 82 at mile post 9 at 1:21 p.m.

The lone vehicle involved in the wreck, a Chevy pickup, rolled into the median. There were no other occupants or other vehicles involved, Cutler said.

The crash prompted the closure of the lefthand lanes of both westbound and eastbound Highway 82 for a period of time. The highway has since been fully reopened, Cutler said.

The driver received serious bodily injury and was transported to Valley View Hospital. Cutler could not say what the citation was for, specifically, but said drunken driving was suspected in the crash.
