AVON, Colorado ” A Wal-Mart semi-truck sits jack-knifed Friday on the Avon, Colorado westbound off-ramp after the driver suffered a medical condition causing him to swerve off Interstate 70.

Police say the truck hit a grey SUV that was exiting I-70 and clipped a black SUV that had broken down and was sitting on the side of the off-ramp.

The truck driver was taken to hospital for his medical condition while the driver of the black SUV was taken with minor injuries.



The Pickens family from Chicago, who were in the grey SUV and on their way to Steamboat Springs when they were hit by the truck, were unharmed. One family member said he thought as avalanche was occurring as the truck swerved off I-70.
