At about 12:30 Thursday morning the driver of a Ford F–150 rolled it, sending it into tree branches.

The accident happened at C Road and Lancaster Lane in Orchard Mesa. A Colorado State Trooper climbed up the tree trying to investigate the accident.

Troopers say alcohol may have been a factor in this accident because they found a bottle of alcohol nearby.

One woman who was ejected from the truck was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Two men went to the hospital as well.
