Semis, Scrap and Smoke

Friday, September 7, 2012

An early morning crash on I-84 near milepost 15 Friday shut down travel for two hours and had firefighters battling an engulfed semi.  Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry said a Santos Metal and Recycling semi filled with scrap steel being driven by Armando Santos of Rupert, Idaho, was traveling eastbound when it drifted into the median then struck a westbound JBS Carrier semi pulling an empty cattle hauler, driven by Randy W. Gibbs of Preston, Idaho.

The impact caused the JBS semi to catch on fire and the recycling semi to overturn.  Scrap metal was spread across the westbound lanes, closing them to travel.  One lane was reopened about 8 a.m., but it was nearly five hours before the second lane was cleared.  Neither driver was seriously injured, but Santos could face improper land travel charges, Perry said.
