A semi, hauling cattle, rolled on Saturday, Sept. 24, at about 2:30 p.m., blocking I-84. According to Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry, the driver was southbound on I-15 and took the westbound I-84 off ramp too fast. He lost control and rolled the semi onto westbound I-84 near milepost 40, blocking parts of I-84 for about four hours. The driver refused treatment and the cattle were transferred, however, five cows were killed. Another rollover occurred at about 4 p.m., on I-84 westbound at mm 9. A male driver, in a GC jimmy SUV, from Roy fell asleep and drifted off the right side of the road. When he woke he overcorrected and came across both westbound lanes and through the median rolling over eastbound I-84, landing on the car’s wheels facing eastbound in the emergency lane. The driver was transported to Bear River Valley Hospital with cuts to his head and hands. Perry said, “These are the types of crashes the UHP continues to focus on reducing as part of the Zero Fatalities effort. The UHP will have extra troopers out this next weekend in an effort to reduce aggressive driving, fatigue driving, DUI and failure to use proper safety restraints.”
