Jackknifed semi causes traffic detour on U.S. 285

By Deborah Swearingen

A jackknifed semi-truck caused traffic to be rerouted on southbound U.S. 285 for about two hours Thursday afternoon, and the highway has since reopened.

Around 1:40 p.m., the Colorado State Patrol received a call about a jackknifed truck near Brookmont Road in Morrison, according to Trooper Josh Lewis.

CSP troopers and the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office responded to the call.

“We had to get the heavy wrecker to basically straighten it out and get it moved,” Lewis said.
