Tanker rollover closes lane of Interstate 15 near Bountiful
BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) — Utah Highway Patrol officials say a tanker rollover crash closed a portion of Interstate 15 near Bountiful for more than five hours.
A semitrailer was hauling a main tanker and a second smaller trailer when the smaller trailer rolled for an unknown reason at about 8 a.m. Sunday.
Highway Patrol officials say the crash caused the smaller trailer to rupture.
The trailer was hauling compressed calcium chloride, a chemical used for de-icing.
It’s unclear how many gallons spilled or how many gallons the tanker was hauling.
According to the Highway Patrol, nobody was injured in the rollover and the northbound lanes of I-15 in the area of the crash re-opened about 1:30 p.m.
