I-15 truck accident

The accident stopped all traffic near 400 South around 9 a.m. after the driver of a car lost control of their vehicle and spun in front of the truck. The collision caused the truck to roll onto its side, blocking several lanes.

The driver of the car suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Officials say the truck driver was unharmed.

All lanes of traffic have since been reopened after the truck was removed from the highway.
