Man sustains minor injuries

One-vehicle rollover occurs near C.R. 14, Colo. 131


— A 42-year-old Steamboat Springs man sustained minor injuries in a one-vehicle rollover just outside of Steamboat Springs Friday.

Joe Zuerlein was headed south near the intersection of Routt County Road 14 and Colorado Highway 131 when his truck drifted to the far right side of the road.

When he overcorrected, the vehicle moved into the northbound lane and rolled onto its left side.

Zuerlein was sent to Yampa Valley Medical Center, where he was treated for minor injuries and released.

The truck received only minor damages.

Trooper Brett Hilling of the Colorado State Patrol said Zuerlein was not speeding and road conditions were not a factor.

The accident is still under investigation.
