A hazmat incident earlier Wednesday was already causing delays on I-15. Utah Highway Patrol reports a semi hit debris near 700 South, causing about 50 gallons of fuel to spill onto the roadway. Several other crashes on both sides of I-15 in the same area caused even further delays.

As of 12:30 p.m., those crashes and the hazmat incident have been cleared.
