(KSL News) -- A semi-truck overturned this afternoon on I- 80 near the mouth of Parley's Canyon and spilled 42- thousand pounds of knitting yarn across the roadway.
Utah Highway Patrol officials say the driver went too fast around a bend in the road. His semi took out three or four cement barriers before sliding nearly 300 feet.
The trailer detached from the truck and forced crews to shut down both lanes of westbound traffic.
Toopers say the driver faces speeding charges.
