On 6-1-08 at approximately 10:21 A.M. Troopers responded to the westbound lanes of I-76 at milepost 66 near Wiggins, CO.

The driver overcorrected and the vehicle entered back onto the westbound lane of I-76 while out of control. The Honda went off the left side of the roadway and continued onto the center median while rolling several times and came to its final rest onto its top facing in a northwesterly manner.
