CLEARFIELD, Utah — An accident in Clearfield left a car hanging off an Interstate 15 overpass Thursday and forced the closure of nearby ramps.

Video shared with FOX 13 shows the back end of a gray or silver sedan sitting on top of the road barrier at 650 North. Both rear tires were exposed over the northbound lanes of the highway.

Two semi trucks, along with another passenger vehicle were involved in the accident, but the Utah Highway Patrol reports minor injuries were involved.

“A vehicle was traveling in the left lane that was slushy and lost control. The vehicle that was hanging over the edge slowed for that vehicle when it was rear ended and then hit the barrier,” said UHP Sgt. Cameron Roden.

Drivers were advised to stay away from the area as some ramps had been closed to traffic.
