State Patrol says the driver of a semi-truck died when his semi overturned and hit a sign pole.
The crash happened just before noon Wednesday in Swink, on Highway 50 east of Pueblo.
The driver was 28. He's from Pennsylvania but his name hasn't been released.
Investigators say he took a curve too fast, causing him to hit a guardrail and a signpost. His truck then began to roll, and collided with a street sign and two telephone poles. When he hit the second telephone pole, the driver was thrown from his truck. Troopers say the driver wasn't wearing a seat belt.
No other vehicles were involved.
