PLATTEVILLE, Colo. – A 70-year-old woman was injured on Monday after her car hit a semitrailer carrying a large wind turbine blade.
The woman was driving her car south on Highway 85 in Platteville at 4 p.m. when she collided with the turbine truck as it was turning from northbound Highway 85 onto Highway 60, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
The left turn was a little tighter than the truck driver thought, and the woman’s car slammed into the side of the big rig, said CSP spokesman Nate Reid.
The woman was taken to the hospital with minor to moderate injuries.
