Semi Truck Carrying Dirt and Rocks Rolls on Redlands Pkwy Spilling Load #GVCopBeat

Posted on

IMG_0400Clean up crews spent more than a couple hours cleaning up a semi load of dirt and rocks that spilled onto the Redlands Pkwy just before 1:00pm today.  The driver was making a right turn onto the Redlands Pkwy from the Riverside Pkwy, just west of the 24 Rd overpass, when the truck and trailer rolled onto their sides.  The driver appeared to have minor injuries from the crash and was transported to the hospital.

A cleanup crew from the construction company that owned the truck brought in equipment to help clear the mess.  City of Grand Junction streets crews were also on scene to help.  The road fully reopened shortly after 3:00pm today.

Officers are still investigating to determine if the driver will be cited for the crash.
