SALT LAKE COUNTY, UT – A semi-truck overturned on the eastbound SR-201 on-ramp before 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday, April 26th.
Upon coming from the northbound lanes of the Mountain View Corridor, the driver of the tractor-trailer hit a concrete barrier, rolled over, and came to rest, leaning on the small hill, according to DPS.
Officials believe the driver was speeding, which could have been the reason why six of the tires popped off and were scattered. Two of the six tires were blocking the median and one eastbound SR-201 lane.
In addition, around 100 gallons of diesel fuel spilled out and was cleaned up by a HazMat clean-up crew.
The driver was seriously injured and declined medical treatment on-site. However, the occupant was later transported to a hospital by Utah Highway Patrol.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
