WIGGINS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a semitrailer that rolled on its side on in northeastern Colorado was split in two by another truck headed down the highway.

Colorado State Patrol spokesman Trooper Josh Lewis says at least one car also drove through the hole in the trailer made by the other truck around 3 a.m. Friday on Interstate 76 near Wiggins.

Lewis says three people were taken to the hospital, one with serious but not life-threatening injuries and the other two with minor to moderate injuries.

The second truck ended up in the opposite lane of traffic after plowing through the rolled truck.

The rolled semi was carrying paint drums, which spilled on the roadway.
