No injuries were reported in one-car rollover accident on Highway 82 at Cattle Creek Monday morning, which slowed eastbound commuter traffic for a little over an hour, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The accident occurred about 7:55 a.m. when the driver of a white sedan lost control of the vehicle while headed east on Highway 82, over-corrected and rolled into the median. The car ended up on its top.

According to CSP Trooper Kimberly Jenkins, eastbound traffic was limited to the right-hand lane until about 9:15 a.m. when the vehicle was towed and both lanes of the highway were reopened. The driver of the wrecked vehicle was uninjured in the crash, Jenkins said.
