The Utah Highway Patrol say the driver was travelling south near Santaquin when he fell asleep at the whell and rolled his big rig.

He was not seriously hurt, but his cargo--a lot of hot tar--spilled onto the freeway and emergency lane.

Crews spent several hours cleaning up before opening both lanes.
