IRON COUNTY -- A section of I-15 was shut down for several hours Wednesday when two semi trucks crashed into each other.

It happened near milepost 101 on the border of Iron and Beaver Counties just before 1 p.m.

Officials say both semis were driving Northbound, when one rear-ended the other.

The driver of the rear-ending semi was pinned inside his cab and crews had to extricate him. Even so, no one suffered major injuries and all lanes are open again.
