The Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) has reported a multi-vehicle crash blocking westbound I-80 near Grantsville.
The crash occurred around 10 a.m. on Wednesday in Tooele County, Utah.
According to reports, a Utah trooper pulled over a semi truck on westbound I-80 near mile marker 85.
A second semi truck driver saw the traffic stop and reportedly tried to move over, but struck a black passenger vehicle.
The driver of the second semi truck then overcorrected and struck both the Utah trooper’s vehicle and the semi truck that was pulled over.
One of the trailers broke open during the crash, spilling packages of eggs all over the interstate.
Two people in the black passenger vehicle were injured, but both are expected to survive.
UHP said shortly after 12:30 p.m. that cleanup of 2 to 3 hours is expected before westbound I-80 reopens.
