A rollover accident Saturday night snarled traffic along Highway 67 near Cripple Creek.

A spokesperson for State Patrol said a man rolled his vehicle around 7:20 p.m. Saturday.

That driver was not hurt and was possibly drunk according to the State Patrol spokesman.

KRDO Newschannel 13 received a call from a viewer about the wreck. They reported being stuck in traffic "for a while" because of the crash.

State troopers said the delay was because they could not find a tow truck operator nearby to move the vehicle from the road.

Colorado State Patrol lists Highway 67 north of Cripple Creek as icy but it's not known if that played a factor in the crash.
