ECHO, Summit County — Several lanes of I-80 were temporarily closed at the freeway interchange with I-84 in Summit County due to a crash and fuel spill, authorities said.

The crash took place about 1:25 p.m., according to a news release from Utah Highway Patrol officials. A semitruck rolled over and caused the spill, according to a tweet from North Summit Fire District officials.

The semitruck tipped over onto the driver's side while going around a curve, blocking most of the eastbound side of the freeway, according to UHP.

The driver was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, but his injuries were not life-threatening, UHP said. The driver was not identified.

Some diesel fuel from the semitruck spilled onto the road, according to UHP. The semitruck was hauling produce and was not hauling any hazardous materials, UHP said.

As of 3:30 p.m., a tow truck was trying to get the truck upright, according to UHP. All lanes were reopened shortly before 6 p.m.

No other information about the fuel spill was immediately available.
