CRAIG — Emergency responders were on the scene Saturday afternoon following a rollover crash on U.S. Highway 40, near the eastern city limits of Craig.

Responders were called to the scene shortly after 2 p.m., after a white Dodge pickup skidded off the road and flipped near mile marker 94.

The vehicle was traveling west when the driver skidded toward the left side of the slick roadway between Wyman Living History Museum and Yampa Valley Electric Association. The truck went off the highway and rolled over along a small embankment, coming to rest upside down.

The driver and one passenger, both adult males, were able to exit the pickup without assistance or extraction. The driver was uninjured, though the passenger complained of back pain after the accident. He was attended to by Memorial Regional Health Emergency Medical Services.

Also on the scene were Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and Craig Fire/Rescue, with Colorado State Patrol in charge of the incident.
