Tipped semi blocks I-84

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA semi tractor hauling packaging material overturned on I-84 early Wednesday morning, leaving the eastbound lanes of travel completely blocked for nearly an hour.

A report from Utah Highway Patrol said the truck was near the Howell exit at milepost 26 just after 4 a.m., when it drifted off the road.  The driver could not correct it and the truck tipped into both travel lanes.  Because the shoulders and emergency lanes were also blocked, traffic had to be diverted onto a gravel frontage road at exit 25 until the truck and trailer could be moved enough to open up a lane to vehicles.

The truck driver was not injured in the accident.
