Military vehicle blocks highway traffic

CSP said the 30,000 pound vehicle landed on its top after falling off a flatbed semi-truck Thursday.

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — The Colorado State Patrol (CSP) told drivers to expect “significant delays” as crews worked to remove an army personnel carrier that fell off a truck and landed on its top on C-470 Thursday evening.

According to a CSP tweet, the carrier came off a flatbed semi-truck in the westbound lanes, just west of Interstate 25, and landed in the middle of the road.

The Fort Carson-based vehicle was eventually placed back on its wheels and has now been cleared, CSP said.
