A semi-trailer tipped on its side in Parleys Canyon Wednesday night, forcing the closure of the East Canyon on-ramp to westbound Interstate 80.

The crash happened around 10 p.m. and the truck was still blocking the ramp as of 8 a.m. Thursday.

Police are investigating to determine whether or not alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The driver sustained minor injuries.
