LEHI — Three I-15 southbound lanes reopened after a tipped trailer caused delays for motorists Friday morning.

The crash was reported about 8:30 a.m. near state Route 73, according to Utah Department of Transportation officials.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Nick Street said a truck was pulling a toy hauler that may not have been balanced properly. The driver lost control of the trailer and it flipped across the three middle lanes of the five-lane freeway, Street said.

No injuries were reported.

UDOT traffic cameras showed drivers moving through the lanes left and right of the wreck before crews moved the trailer to the two right lanes of the freeway. Those two right lanes were closed and traffic was moving through the three left lanes.

The remaining lanes reopened shortly after 10 a.m.
