GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) — A tractor-trailer tipped on top of a car in Colorado’s mountains in strong winds on Thursday.

The Colorado State Patrol tweeted a photos of the truck leaned on top of the smashed roof of the Volvo station wagon on Interstate 70 near Georgetown. It says everyone in the car was able to get out.

The strong winds and dry weather are also keeping the fire danger high in the eastern half of the state.
