Utah, July 16, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah Highway Patrol is investigating its second and third semi rollovers of the day Tuesday.

At 3:30 p.m., UHP tweeted troopers are on the scene of a rollover on Interstate 80 eastbound at mile marker 104 involving a double tanker carrying salt.

“Traffic is being diverted to SR-201 via SR-202,” the tweet said.

A follow-up tweet at 3:50 p.m. said: “We are reopening one lane on I-80 right now. Far right lane at mile marker 105 will be closed for a bit longer.”

Just after 3:30 p.m., UHP tweeted there had been another rollover on westbound I-84 at mile marker 92.

“This semi is hauling beer,” the tweet said. “We have one westbound lane open, it may be subject to intermittent closures during the cleanup process.”

A semi rollover on Interstate 84 in Morgan County also blocked both eastbound and westbound traffic Tuesday morning.

A tweet from Utah Highway Patrol at 8:45 a.m. said the rollover was at exit 108. The tweet said two vehicles were involved — a semi and a dump truck on the westbound side.

All three semi drivers had minor injuries which were treated on scene.

The semi on I-84 was not hauling hazardous materials and a small diesel spill has been contained, officials said.

Traffic was rerouted along the frontage road while the diesel spill was cleaned up.
