A car lost control and overturned on the east bound side of Interstate 70 Sunday afternoon.

The accident happened just outside of De Beque .

State Patrol says the driver, an 18 year old woman from Colorado Springs, was on her way home when her car flipped over near mile marker 51.

She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital with minor injuries.

State Patrol is still investigating what caused the crash, although the driver told first responders she was trying to dodge a rock.

Motorists traveling east experienced short delays while crews cleared the wreckage.
