A rollover accident that sent two people to the hospital closed one lane of I-70 while authorities cleared the scene Friday.

Though the closure isn't slowing traffic much, it is closed down to one lane near DeBeque.

One person was airlifted to a Grand Junction hospital, the other was taken by ambulance. No word on their conditions at this time.

Officials say a truck towing a trailer with a small piece of heavy machinery was headed eastbound on I-70 when the trailer began fishtailing. The truck rolled into the median.
