First responders were dispatched early Saturday to a report of a rollover crash on Colorado Highway 394.

The crash happened shortly after midnight, when an automobile flipped on the road about 8 miles south of Craig, near the border of Moffat and Routt counties and Breeze Basin.

According to Colorado State Patrol, the crash occurred when an eastbound 1999 4Runner swerved to avoid a vehicle stopped on the road. The SUV rolled losing its right, rear tire and coming to rest upside-down in the middle of the roadway.

State Patrol said the dark conditions likely contributed to the crash.

Craig Fire/Rescue and Memorial Regional Health also responded to the scene. The driver and two passengers were all minors.

There were no injuries, and none of those involved required hospital transport.
