EMERY COUNTY — A semitrailer carrying motorcycles on I-70 tipped over, blocking two lanes on a bridge.

Around 4:25 p.m. Saturday, a semitrailer was travelling westbound on I-70 when a gust of wind caused the driver to lose control. The truck tipped onto its driver's side near milepost 131.

The semitrailer was transporting motorcycles in an enclosed trailer, which needed to be unloaded before the truck could be moved, Utah Highway Patrol reported.

UHP told drivers to expect significant delays for several hours, as the truck was blocking two westbound lanes on a bridge.

More updates will be posted as they become available.
