Driver suffers minor injuries after sliding off embankment on I-70
Summit Daily News
A driver slid about 100 feet off an embankment on Vail Pass today, according to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Colin Remillard.
Remillard said the incident was a single vehicle crash involving only one person, and that the driver evidently slid off the road and down into a gully between the east and westbound lanes of I-70 on Vail Pass, west of Copper Mountain.
Remillard said the driver suffered only minor injuries. A tow truck is currently in route to the area. No roads have been closed as a result of the accident.
Gore Creek since 2013 has been listed on the state’s list of “impaired waterways.” Several years of work are paying off, but getting off the list has become more difficult.
