HAZMAT spill at Exit 205 interchange in Silverthorne Friday evening causes long delays

A truck and semitrailer collision near the 7-Eleven at the I-70 interchange in Silverthorne has caused a 60-gallon diesel spill. Summit Fire & EMS reported that HAZMAT teams have been dispatched to the scene and clean up will take at least two to three hours; the area is ecologically sensitive as it is near the Blue River.

Delays are expected on I-70 in both directions from Exit 205 while clean up is underway. One injury has been reported, with the individual sent to St. Anthony Summit Medical Center for treatment.

The following are images sent from Summit Fire & EMS chief Jeff Berino.
