A tractor-trailer flipped onto a vehicle traveling on a Colorado interstate during high winds Thursday, but no serious injuries were reported, officials said.

The crash took place in the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near Georgetown around 10:45 a.m. local time, FOX 31 Denver reported.

The four people in the Volvo were able to get out, and only suffered minor injuries, the Colorado State Patrol said on Twitter.

High winds in the area likely caused the truck to roll over, according to the CSP.
