A truck was forced to take the runaway ramp on westbound Interstate 70 Monday afternoon after losing its brakes coming down from the Eisenhower Tunnel.

The driver was unharmed, but an axle on his vehicle broke, delaying the process of removing it from the ramp. According to a Colorado State Patrol officer on the scene, the summer months see more runaways than usual — about two or three per month.
