(KSL News) A semi truck tipped its load this morning in Salt Lake.

Troopers say the truck was traveling west on the Interstate 215 ramp to southbound I-15. The speed limit on that ramp is 25 miles per hour, but troopers say the driver was going much faster.

The truck's load of 40,000 pounds of tape spilled all over the road. It took several hours to get that cleaned up.
