A trucker was killed Saturday on Interstate 70 in western Colorado when a rockslide dropped tons of boulders on her tractor-trailer near De Beck.
The woman, 53-year-old Patricia Ann Bradshaw of Grand Junction, CO, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was hauling for Mile High Frozen Food and pulling
a McDonald’s trailer.
State highway officials said heavy rains apparently loosened the soil
on a sheer hillside beside the highway.
On Monday, the westbound lanes of I-70 remained closed at the rock
slide, with the eastbound lanes handling traffic in both directions.
