MORGAN — Most lanes on I-84 reopened Tuesday evening, hours after both directions of the freeway were shut down due to a semitruck rollover, authorities said.

The Utah Department of Transportation estimated the crash scene would be cleared around 8:45 p.m., according to its website. As of 8 p.m., only one westbound lane was closed.

The driver of the semitruck suffered minor injuries, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred near the Taggart’s exit, about 2 miles east of Morgan, according to KSL Newsradio's Heather Kelly. The accident was first reported about 7 a.m. by officials from UDOT.

The semitruck and a dump truck were involved in the crash on the westbound side of the highway, according to UHP.

Traffic in both directions was diverted off the highway at exit 108 and back on the highway without major disruption, UHP said.

The semitruck was not hauling hazardous materials, but a small diesel spill did occur and has been contained, according to UHP.

A second semitruck rollover occurred Tuesday afternoon on westbound I-84 about 2 miles west of Mountain Green in Weber County, according to UDOT.

That truck was hauling beer, according to UHP. As of 3:30 p.m., one westbound lane was open in that area, but there may be additional intermittent closures as crews clean up the crash scene, UHP said.
