A driver slid about 100 feet off an embankment on Vail Pass today, according to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Colin Remillard.

Remillard said the incident was a single vehicle crash involving only one person, and that the driver evidently slid off the road and down into a gully between the east and westbound lanes of I-70 on Vail Pass, west of Copper Mountain.

Remillard said the driver suffered only minor injuries. A tow truck is currently in route to the area. No roads have been closed as a result of the accident.
