A man was killed when his Grand Cherokee that was towing a trailer rolled on southbound Interstate—25 yesterday afternoon, authorities say.

The identity of the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, has not been confirmed, said Trooper Ryan Sullivan, a spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol.

The victim, who was driving south about 11 miles north of Pueblo at 12:20 p.m., first drove off the right side of the highway. He turned back onto the highway, overcorrected and his SUV and trailer began to rotate, Sullivan said.

Both the SUV and the trailer rolled onto the median on the left side of the highway.

Patrol officers continue to investigate the crash. No other vehicles were involved, Sullivan said.
