Truck Accident on U.S. 36 On-Ramp Shuts Down I-25

A truck accident on a U.S. 36 on-ramp caused traffic on Interstate 25 to back up for hours on Saturday evening. The accident occurred just after 3 p.m. On the westbound ramp of U.S. Highway 36, when an 18-wheeler hauling asphalt dumped its load onto the roadway. The northbound lanes of I-25, just north of Denver, were closed until 7:50 p.m. while workers cleaned up the accident. There were no injuries reported in the accident.

Fortunately, no one was injured in this accident, but that is not often the case in truck accidents. When injuries do occur in truck accidents, they are typically more serious than injuries suffered in other passenger vehicle accidents. Some common truck accident injuries include:

  • Neck/back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Internal injuries requiring surgery
  • Scarring/burns/physical disfigurement
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Paraplegia/quadriplegia
  • Wrongful death
