Man suffers injuries after crashing into elk on Interstate 25 in Colorado

Mountain View Fire Rescue tweeted Saturday that a man sustained minor injuries after hitting a large elk with his vehicle overnight on Interstate 25.

The crash happened just north of Highway 66, not far from Mead in Weld County.

MVFR says a second car drove upon the scene and while trying to avoid the elk, they hit a guardrail and rolled. The driver in the first car declined to be transported to the hospital after the accident and everyone in the second care was reportedly OK.
