Accident On I-80 Delays Traffic Thursday Morning


An accident on Interstate 80 up Parley’s Canyon clogged traffic for a time Thursday morning.

The Utah Highway Patrol reported that the accident occurred after 6:00 am. Near the East Canyon exit from I-80. A ford explorer pulled to the left to get around slow-moving uphill traffic, but rear-ended a truck towing a flatbed trailer.

There were four vehicles, total, involved in the accident. The driver of the ford, the only occupant, was seriously injured and transported from the scene. One other driver had non-life threatening injuries but was taken by ambulance as a precaution. Other injuries were treated at the scene.

All lanes were opened up again to traffic by roughly 9:00 am.
