Two women were flown by helicopter to Memorial Hospital after being injured in a rollover crash about 6 p.m. Saturday that closed the eastbound lane of Colorado Highway 94, near Peyton Highway, east of Colorado Springs, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Both the driver and the passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries, although the driver's injuries were more serious, said Trooper Josh Lewis, a State Patrol spokesman.

According to Lewis, a 1991 Chevrolet pick-up truck was towing a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier - via a tow rope - when the Cavalier rolled over. He didn't know the cause.

The two women, whose ages weren't known, were in the Cavalier and steering the vehicle as it was being towed, Lewis said. One of the women was ejected in the rollover.

It didn't appear anybody in the truck was injured, Lewis said.

The road re-opened later in the evening.
