On April 01, 2008 at approximately 2:15 AM CSP was notified of a body in the roadway on westbound I-70.

CSP investigators have determined that a 1992 Ford Explorer traveling westbound on I-70 lost control, rolled at least 1 1/2 times ejecting the driver who was not wearing his seat belt. The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle.

We have evidence that at least three other westbound vehicles ran over the body. One vehicle, a 1997 Mitsubishi Montero believed to be the second vehicle to run over the body also rolled and crashed. None of the others stopped. One driver called to report rocks on the road.

Due to the nature of this crash and investigation westbound I-70 had to be closed at U.S. 40. Traffic was then diverted into U.S 40.

Westbound I-70 has now re-opened (7:15 AM).

An update will follow.
