JEFFERSON COUNTY - A 200 ton rockslide 10 miles west of Golden has closed US Highway 6 through Clear Creek Canyon Tuesday.

Colorado Department of Transportation officials say two semis were involved in the slide.

Brian Jordan of CDOT says at least one of the semi drivers has been injured. He also said one of the trucks is leaking fuel.

Officials do not know if fuel has leaked into Clear Creek.

The road is closed on the east end in Golden and on the west end just east of the intersection of Highway 6 and Route 119. Jordan says the road will not be open until after it is cleared and inspected by CDOT crews.

There will be updates on 9NEWS and 9NEWS.com throughout the day.

If you read the article, it says a mile east of the intersection of 6 and 119 (the turnoff to Blackhawk). Looks like the road will be closed until tomorrow, at least- that's a shit ton of rock.
