SOUTH SALT LAKE — A freeway interchange from I-15 to I-80 was closed for hours Sunday afternoon as crews responded to a semitrailer crash.

Shortly after noon, Utah Highway Patrol troopers say a semi carrying a load of apples went onto the right shoulder, hit the barrier and partially tipped over at the southbound I-15 ramp to eastbound I-80.

No one was injured, and no other vehicles were involved. The Utah Department of Transportation responded to check the barrier for damage.

Initially, only one lane was closed, then two, and later, all three lanes were closed as crews worked to clear the scene. The ramp was fully open by 5:20 p.m.
