Department of Public Safety trooper Carson Dening said a Kia SUV rear-ended a Dodge Ram pickup, causing it to roll. Dening said the driver was coherent and did not appear to suffer life-threatening injuries.

Cody Crocker witnesses the wreck and helped tend to the driver, who was briefly trapped in the vehicle.

“It was crazy,” Crocker said. “[The driver] was a little shaken up. [The car] rolled like three times.”

Traffic southbound on 287 was shut down for roughly half an hour while crews worked to clear the scene.
