A Toyota 4Runner was traveling northbound on Colorado 287, when it drifted off the right side of the road and collided with a guard rail. After impact, Toyota continued northbound traveling across the travel lanes and collided with another guard rail. After the second impact, Toyota continued northbound and began to rotate clockwise, traveling back across the travel lanes. The Toyota went off the right side of the road again and rolled 2 ½ times, colliding with a barbed wire fence and came to rest in an open field, on its roof, facing south.
