SANDY, Utah – An accident on I-15 Thursday morning is giving new meaning to the term, “hay ride.”

All southbound I-15 lanes were closed near 106th S. after two 1-ton bales of hay fell onto the roadway at about 5 a.m.

Officials said the bales fell off a semi truck, covering all lanes in about two feet of hay.

Police said five cars were damaged after hitting the hay bales.

Crews called in snow plows to help clear the roadway.

All lanes are back open at this time.
