VIDEO: Tanker truck slams into disabled semi, causing trailer rollover and hazmat spill on Utah interstate


A truck driver’s dash cam captured a multi-vehicle crash involving a tanker truck driver hauling crude oil that happened in Draper, Utah, on Wednesday.

The crash happened around 11:30 p.m. on December 7 on northbound I-15 in Draper.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP), a semi truck jackknifed near 14200 South and became disabled in the right lanes of I-15. A car moved over to avoid the jackknifed semi, but was then struck by a pickup ‚Äútraveling at a significantly higher speed.”

At this point, UHP says that a semi truck driver hauling two tankers of crude oil was traveling too fast for conditions when it hit the jackknifed truck.

One of the tankers overturned and spilled 1500 gallons of crude oil.

An SUV also struck debris from the crash and became disabled on I-15.

No major injuries were reported.

The interstate was closed through Thursday afternoon for the hazmat cleanup, but all lanes are now open.
