PUEBLO, Colorado — A semi-truck hauling a wind tower section lost its payload Sunday morning in Pueblo on US Highway 50 / Colorado Highway 47. All eastbound lanes between the I-25 off ramp and Dillon Drive are closed.

No one was injured in the wreck which happened sometime around 8:00 a.m. Crews have called for a crane and a second truck to remove the fallen tower.

Drivers are urged to take the US Hwy 50 bypass to avoid the road closure. There is no estimate yet on when the closed lanes will reopen.
