Crash Closes Boot Jack Hill

UPDATE: The road re-opened at about 1:45 p.m.

Route 219 south of Ridgway had to be closed late this morning because of a crash on Boot Jack Hill that spilled about 20 tons of coal onto the road.

Four people were hurt in the crash between a tri-axle and two passenger vehicles that happened at about 11 a.m. The extent of their injuries hasn’t been released yet.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
