LEHI — Traffic is unwinding Saturday morning as southbound I-15 has reopened in Lehi following a long closure.

The highway was closed near Thanksgiving Point after the Utah Highway Patrol says 14 crashes occurred in the same area.

The incident started with a single rollover crash due to black ice, UHP Sgt. Brady Zaugg said. The crash snowballed into 14 total crashes.

Zaugg said there have been no major injuries reported in the wrecks.

A UDOT Twitter account announced about 10:07 a.m. that all lanes of the highway have reopened and encouraged drivers to use caution in the area.
