Accident occurred shortly before 5 p.m. Friday

Emergency workers responded to a three-vehicle crash Friday during the evening rush hour on U.S. Highway 550 south of Durango.

The southbound lane of traffic was closed shortly before 5 p.m. and didn’t reopen until about 6:15 p.m. near Bondad Hill, in the the 5800 block of Highway 550, said Chris Burke, spokesman for the La Plata County Sheriff's Office.

One male patient was taken to a hospital, but Burke did not immediately have additional information about injuries.
