One semi drove through the trailer of a second semi that flipped on Interstate 76 on Friday morning.

The crash happened near Wiggins around 3:25 a.m.

Video shows one semi truck on its side across both lanes of traffic. It appears a second semi drove through the trailer, cutting it in half and spilling paint and debris over a wide area.

The second semi ended up across the lanes of traffic in the opposite direction.

At least one other vehicle was involved in the crash.

The Colorado State Patrol told Denver7 three drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Interstate 76 was back open at 5:40 p.m., according to a CDOT official.
