Wreck backs up I-70 eastbound

Traffic backs up Wednesday morning on I-70 west of Glenwood Springs.

Eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 were clogged early Wednesday after a wreck near mile marker 110 between Glenwood Springs and New Castle.

The eastbound side of the interstate had an extensive traffic queue when the lanes were opened up at about 7:47 a.m.

The wreck involved a moving truck and a FedEx truck.

Emergency responders got the call at 4:48 a.m. The wreck had taken out about 30 to 40 feet of guardrail.

A 46-year-old Utah woman driving a moving truck was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and a 45-year-old man driving the FedEx truck was not injured, according to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis.
