SALT LAKE CITY — The westbound lanes of I-80 are closed near the mouth of Parleys Canyon due to a semitrailer crash Wednesday morning.
Traffic is being diverted off the freeway and onto southbound I-215 East.
According to a Utah Highway Patrol spokesman, a semitrailer hauling tractor parts veered to the right side of the road near mile marker 130 shortly after 5 a.m. The driver lost control of the truck and hit a concrete barrier.
The impact sent the trailer over the barrier, and the trailer came to a rest on its side, high-centered on the barrier. The driver was not injured.
