LEHI — A cold front blowing through the state Tuesday is causing problems on the roads, especially near Point of the Mountain where a semi rolled.

The rollover happened at about 3:30 p.m., forcing the shutdown if northbound I-15 and causing major traffic delays. The truck was set upright and the road reopened just before 5 p.m.

There were no injuries.

The winds that caused the accident are the result of an incoming cold front. KSL meteorologist Kevin Eubank says some areas of the state have seen winds upwards of 70 miles per hour.

Thunderstorms are expected Tuesday night.
