Two Adams County sheriff's deputies are recovering after their patrol car crashed and rolled at the intersection of Interstate 76 and Interstate 25 north of Denver.

The car apparently wiped out the guardrail and landed on a nearby embankment just before 1 a.m. Sunday, and rescue crews had to cut the deputies out of the vehicle.

According to CBS4 Denver, the deputies were in an unmarked patrol car.

The deputies, whose names have not been released, were taken to a hospital with serious injuries but are expected to recover.

Heather Cobbler with the Colorado State Patrol said the vehicle traveled off the south side of the roadway and struck a guardrail and a light pole, before rolling down an embankment.

The deputies were reportedly responding to a report of a dangerous driver at the time of the crash.
