Emergency workers from Taos are responding to a one-vehicle rollover near Pilar on State Road  68.

The vehicle suddenly had a wheel come off, causing the driver to lose control, according to Chris Medina, new director of emergency services for Taos County.

None of the vehicle's occupants, including two children, were seriously injured, according to Medina. 

The accident was reported between mile marker 31 and 32 at about 9:41 a.m., Sunday (June 24)  according to Taos Central Dispatch. Drivers are likely to encounter delays as emergency workers, law enforcement and other personnel work to clear the vehicle from the road. 

A crew is still on scene working to clean up the accident because fuel is leaking from the vehicle.
