(KSL News) A big mess on I-15 took workers hours to clean up.
A pickup truck lost control of the trailer it was pulling. It happened near the exit to Bangerter Highway. Highway Patrol troopers say the trailer was overloaded by about a thousand pounds when it left Orem. It went out of control and jacknifed.
It was carrying soap, staples used to nail down wood flooring, and several hundred Christmas cards. The staples scattered all over the freeway were especially cumbersome to clear away.
