WINTER PARK – The westbound lane of U.S. 40 over Berthoud Pass has been closed from a single semi-trailer rollover accident.

The trailer was hauling solid trash on Berthoud Pass when the accident occurred about three miles east of Winter Park at mile marker 236 near Mary Jane.

Within the first hour, the trailer leaked about five gallons from its fuel tank, according to Colorado Department of Transportation spokesperson Bob Wilson. Clean-up efforts are under way.

The accident happened just after 11 a.m. It is not yet clear how long west-bound traffic will be delayed.
