A one-car rollover Friday on County Road 29 led to the arrest of the driver by the Colorado State Patrol, according to first responders.
Drug or alcohol use was suspected in the crash, said Trooper Gary Cutler.
About 3:30 p.m. a northbound blue Ford Focus with three occupants went off the roadway near Totten Lake and rolled down a steep embankment, said Charles Borden, battalion chief for the Cortez Fire Protection District.
The car, registered in New Mexico, sustained heavy damage and came to rest upright in a sagebrush field on the east side of the road.
A man, woman and child had exited the vehicle by the time first responders arrived.
They were not transported by ambulance, but the Colorado State Patrol reported there were unspecified injuries.
The driver, a 26-year-old man from Cortez, was taken into custody by the Colorado State Patrol, according to first responders at the scene.
The road was closed at 3:42 p.m. in both directions and reopened at 4:30 p.m., Culter said.
Local emergency crews and law enforcement responded, including Cortez Fire Protection District, Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office, Southwest Health System Ambulance, and the Colorado State Patrol.
The accident remains under investigation.
