One Transported to Hospital in Car vs. Truck Crash

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A Fruita man was transported to an area hospital tonight with serious injuries, after his car collided with a UPS truck near the 1900 block of J road east of Fruita.

Troopers with the Colorado State Patrol say the UPS driver was making a u-turn for a delivery, when the Kia struck the rear side of the vehicle.

The male driver of the Kia had to be extricated from that vehicle--he has been transported to the hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries.

Neighbors near the scene tell News Channel 5 the collision between their two vehicles made the walls shake in their homes.

The road has been blocked for sometime as troopers continue to investigate the scene.

The driver of the UPS truck has been cited for a misdemeanor traffic offense of careless driving causing injury.
