A front tire was torn in the accident.
The car continued to move forward and bounced off a light pole.
Then it ran over a sign and came to rest in the middle of eastbound lanes on I–70B.
Grand Junction and Clifton fire departments responded, along with members of the mesa county sheriff department and Colorado state patrol.
The male driver was detained while state patrol investigated the accident.
Law enforcement authorities say alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.
