SALT LAKE CITY — Lanes have reopened after two separate rollover crashes closed two lanes of I-80 westbound near 2400 West Wednesday morning, officials said.

A pickup truck was westbound on I-215 headed onto I-80 about 4 a.m. when it slid off the wet road and rolled onto I-80, according to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Washburn.

A semitruck on I-80 swerved to avoid the pickup and rolled 100 yards down the road, Washburn said.

The drivers of the vehicles were not seriously injured.

The crash scene was cleared by 8:25 a.m., but drivers in the area may still experience some residual delays, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
