ST. GEORGE, Utah – A rollover along Interstate 15 in northern Arizona backed up traffic for miles on Sunday afternoon.

Utah Highway Patrol say a truck and camping trailer traveling northbound on I-15 rolled around noon about two miles north of the Cedar Pocket Rest Area, which is located about twenty miles southwest of St. George. The trailer overturned onto its top and debris from inside began spilling on the roadway.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says at least one lane of the roadway was closed for several hours, and traffic was backed up for more than 10 miles.
