Utah Highway Patrol said four semitrailers were involved in a crash on a westbound Interstate 215 overpass Saturday.

UHP said three semis were traveling in the left lane on the interstate near Redwood Road at about 1:30 p.m., when traffic slowed because of the snow.

They said the first semi was rear-ended by the second semi, while the second semi was rear ended by the third semi behind it. This domino effect caused the trailer belonging to the first semi to slide into the right lane, striking a fourth semi.

UHP said there were no injuries.

One trailer was totaled. Two trailers had to be towed.
