Hair-raising semi crash causes ‘severe backups’ in Salt Lake City


Utah transportation officials say that drivers should seek alternate routes until the evening rush hour following a truck crash that left the cab dangling from an overpass.

The crash occurred around 11:30 a.m. on the ramp from I-215 North to I-80 West in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In images captured at the scene, you can see the cab of the truck hanging over the side of the ramp while the trailer remains on the ramp.

Firefighters say that there were no injuries and that the driver self-extricated.

Drivers are being asked to avoid the area, including I-80 East to I-215 South as traffic is experiencing “severe backups.”

Crews are working to repair the damaged barrier. The road is expected to reopen around 4 p.m.
