Whitewater, Colo. (KKCO) --- Traffic is flowing again along Highway 141 after being closed for several hours Thursday morning.

After a semi-truck veered off of the road, the driver swerved back onto the highway causing the vehicle to roll over, blocking both lanes of traffic.

The driver of the truck, a man in his fifties from Grand Junction, was taken to the hospital, but his injuries weren't severe.

The truck wasn't carrying any hazardous materials, only some heavy tires.

It's unclear how the driver lost control but state troopers suspect he was distracted in some way.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
