Tanker Causes I-25 Closure

Colorado Roll-Over Accident Attorney

A small tanker truck rolled and spilled about 200 gallons of molten asphalt onto I-25 on Sunday, closing the southbound lanes at 120th Avenue. The Denver Post is reporting that the spill kept the southbound lanes closed until about 4 p.m. as state highway department crews and a private hazmat crew cleaned up the asphalt. The driver of the tanker suffered minor injuries and was taken to Denver Health Medical Center. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. The cause is still under investigation.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, in 2008, 548 people in Colorado were killed in motor vehicle involved crashes. Of the 548 fatalities, 42 were pedestrians, 83 were motorcyclists and 56 were semi-truck involved.

Colorado rollover accidents commonly result in high costs, both for property damages and personal injuries, and properly assigning liability is crucial to ensuring that the correct party is responsible for payment of damages.  Colorado drivers who have been in a rollover accident should consult with a Colorado roll-over accident attorney who specializes in traffic and personal injury law – this is the only way for drivers to protect their legal rights, and ensure that they are not forced to pay for damages that were not their fault.
