Big rig carrying 72,000 lbs of beer overturns in Morgan County

MORGAN COUNTY, UT – A driver of a semi-truck drifted off westbound I-84 and into the Weber River around 2 p.m. Sunday. 

According to ABC 4, the 18-wheeler was hauling 72,000 pounds of beer when the driver crashed into the muddy waters near the Peterson exit. 

Interstate 84 in this area was closed so that tow companies could remove the truck. 

In addition, fuel from the truck was contained, and diesel did not pour into the river, thanks to “HazMat Flotation Booms.”

The driver appeared to have sustained minor injuries, was treated at the scene, and did not need to be taken to a hospital.
