COLORADO SPRINGS – An overturned semi caused some delays for drivers on S. Academy Boulevard just before rush hour Wednesday afternoon in Colorado Springs.

CDOT said all lanes of NB S. Academy Blvd. are back open after it was flipped back on its tires and towed away hours after the crash Wednesday evening.

Authorities said the driver of the truck exited NB I-25 driving too fast, causing the truck to roll over onto its side. CDOT tells us the driver suffered minor injuries.
