DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - There was some extra holiday traffic along I-25 in Colorado on Thursday after authorities say a man wanted on several felony warrants crashed a truck and tried to flee the scene.

The crash happened early Thursday afternoon on northbound I-25 south of Castle Rock and just north of the Greenland Exit. Somehow, the driver of a truck ended up on top of a guardrail. Colorado State Patrol is reporting the driver then tried to leave the scene of the crash on foot. A trooper was able to track down the suspect and take him into custody.

The suspect had felony warrants and drugs. There were no reported injuries in the crash that caused some delays in the GAP project.
