EAGLE ” A man who crashed his car into some boulders and trees on Interstate 70 was taken to a Denver hospital Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Ly Nguyen, 64, of Edwards, was driving west when he went off the left side of the road and crashed into several boulders and a couple of trees in the median about four miles east of the Eagle exit, Colorado State Trooper Ben Steger said.

Steger said Nguyen may have had a stroke. Steger did not believe Nguyen’s injuries were life threatening Tuesday night, he said.

Nguyen’s condition was unavailable Wednesday.
