SALT LAKE CITY — A semitrailer jack-knifed and blocked lanes on I-80 eastbound Wednesday at approximately noon.

It happened near the ramp to join I-15 southbound. Traffic was forced to go northbound on I-15.

A hazmat crew was called to the scene because the semitrailer is leaking fuel, according to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Ted Tingey.

There are no reported injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
