— Routt County Road 14 near the entrance to Stagecoach Lake State Park was closed early Tuesday evening after a car went off the road and crashed into the ditch.

Oak Creek Fire Protection District Chief Chuck Wisecup said his department along with Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue responded to a report of a car that had crashed and was on fire.

Wisecup said that the two women in the car were not thought to have sustained serious injuries and that he did not know whether the fire started before or after the crash. The airbags in the car deployed, and one of the women had a bloody nose, Wisecup said.

Colorado State Patrol was investigating the crash Tuesday.
