Thursday December 8, 2022

On Wednesday, December 7, 2022, at about 11:15 am, an Amazon semi truck jack knifed on I-15 northbound near 14200 South blocking the right lanes. A passenger car entered at 14600 South and merged over to avoid the semi. A pickup truck traveling at a significantly higher speed hit the back of the car. A semi truck with two tankers full of crude oil was traveling too fast for the conditions and lost control, sliding into the back of the Amazon semi. The semi truck\’s back tanker trailer overturned and came detached, blocking the middle lanes. The tank was compromised and approximately 1500 gallons of crude oil spilled onto I-15 northbound. An SUV struck debris and was also disabled. I-15 northbound was closed at 14600 South. Hazmat, fire, UDOT and environmental groups are on scene assisting with clean up. It is estimated the closure will be in place for another 2-3 hours. No serious injuries were claimed on scene.
