EAGLE COUNTY – A truck overturned on a curvy stretch of Highway 24 Tuesday morning but the driver sustained no injuries, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Eugene Hofacker said.

The truck rolled over around 9:45 a.m. while coming around a corner about a half mile west of Tennessee Pass, outside Leadville, he said. Officials stopped traffic on Highway 24 in both directions for less than 30 minutes while they rolled the trailer back on its wheels, he said. The truck had been carrying scaffolding, Hofacker said. He did not have the driver’s name readily available.
