Colorado: 15-passenger van rolls over on U.S. 34 bypass

JOSHUA POLSON/ A van sits at top of the ramp leading to U.S 34 Tuesday afternoon. The accident closed the ramp briefly, all those riding in the van were sent to North Colorado Medical Center.
Sixteen people were taken to North Colorado Medical Center on Tuesday evening after a single-vehicle rollover on U.S. 34 Bypass and U.S. 85 business rout at 5:02 p.m. Colorado State Tropper Nate Reid said the Ford 15-passenger van was driven by a man. The names, ages and extent of injuries of those taken to NCMC were not immediately available; however, the injuries did not seem to be life-threatening, said Lt. Teresa Hinz of the Greeley Fire Department. “We suspect it was caused by high speed,” she explained. “They were likely going too fast on the off ramp and lost control.”
