Accidents in Grand County keep officers busy

Grand County, Colorado

Wednesday morning was a busy one for law enforcement officers around Grand County, Colorado, as they were called to handle a couple of traffic accidents on the highways.

About 9 a.m., Granby Police were dispatched to handle a rollover accident east of town on U.S. Highway 40. The accident was a single-car rollover due to icy conditions at Milepost 221 on the Tabernash side of Red Dirt Hill. No injuries were reported and the highway was quickly reopened.

At about the same time, troopers from the Kremmling office of the Colorado State Patrol responded to an accident on State Highway 134 near Gore Pass.

In that accident, a semitruck’s trailer had tipped over and spilled the load of logs it was carrying onto the highway at Milepost 20, about seven miles west of the junction with U.S. Highway 40. No injuries were reported, and the highway was partially blocked for a few hours until the damaged trailer and logs could be moved.
