TOOELE COUNTY, Utah - A semi-truck rollover accident caused a few delays on I-80 in Tooele County Friday.

The Utah Highway Patrol said a semi hauling seven cars hit a median and rolled at about 5 a.m.

Troopers said one car rolled off the semi and the impact of the crash disconnected the trailer.

Two more cars rolled off the trailer bed and once the semi came to a stop, another car crashed into the back of the truck.

Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

The eastbound lanes of I-80 near SR 201 were shut down as crews cleaned up and repaired the median. The lanes have since reopened.

A representative for UHP said the semi-trailer driver was cited for unsafe lane travel.
