An accident involving a semi truck blocked both directions of US 50 about 10 miles east of Salida Wednesday afternoon.

One lane with alternating traffic re-opened around 5:00 P.M. but the Colorado Department of Transportation said drivers should continue to expect delays.

The Howard Fire Department tells KRDO NewsChannel 13 that a semi rolled over about a mile west of Howard.  The crash happened just before 1:30 p.m.
