SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah, April 6, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A semi rollover Saturday morning in Summit County blocked traffic for hours.

The vehicle flipped onto its side on the Interstate 84 ramp to Interstate 80. The incident impacted eastbound lanes the most.

“Third semi rollover this week I-84 EB ramp to I-80 WB BLOCKED,” said a tweet issued by the North Summit Fire.

The same agency posted photos on Twitter of an accident on April 2 and one on March 30, both at the exact spot. The March 30 photo shows that the speed limit at that spot is 35 mph.

The scene of Saturday’s accident was expected to be cleared by 1:30 p.m., according to a Utah Department of Transportation tweet.
