STRASBURG, Colo. — A semi-truck hauling fuel rolled over near Strasburg Monday afternoon, trapping two people inside and closing part of Interstate 70 westbound.

The truck ran up an embankment about a mile west of Strasburg about 1:42 p.m., the Colorado State Patrol reported. The ensuing rollover caused some 150 gallons of fuel to spill from the trailer’s saddle tanks.

Two people were briefly caught inside, suffering minor injuries, CSP said.

One lane of westbound I-70 was closed.
