Colorado State Troopers say six people involved in a rollover accident on I-70 Wednesday weren't ejected during the accident thanks to their seatbelts.
The accident happened just before 8 a.m. near mile marker 82 outside Rulison. The driver, Alicea Sheets of Colorado Springs was driving a Suburban eastbound when she ran off the road and lost control.
Troopers say the SUV rolled two and a half times and landed on its roof in the median. The six people inside the vehicle were wearing seatbelts and weren't ejected.
All the victims were taken to a Rifle-area hospital and three were released. The other three were flown to a Grand Junction hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
No word on if Sheets will be cited.
