RIVERDALE, Utah, June 26, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A semi-truck full of frozen potatoes tipped over, spilling fuel and forcing the shut down of the exit for hours Saturday night in Riverdale.

Utah Highway Patrol said the accident happened just after 5 p.m. when a semi-truck pulling a single trailer took the exit too fast around a curve and tipped over while on the bridge over I-15.

The driver and his passenger, his 11-year-old son, did not sustained any significant injuries.

I-84 exit ramp to I-15 was closed for the majority of the evening but has since re-opened.

Weber-Morgan Health Department responded due to the significant fuel leak from the tractor.
