DAVIS COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) – A semi-truck crash into a powerline has shut down lanes along I-15 in Davis County on Monday morning.
Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) says several crashes are currently blocking roads near Parrish Lane near Centerville.
UHP says the incident happened when a downed powerline was hanging near Parrish Lane around 4:11 a.m.
Authorities say a semi-truck hauling a container on the southbound lanes of I-15 struck the powerline, causing the vehicle to crash and roll over. The collision caused the semi-truck to leak fuel all over the highway.
During the crash, UHP says the semi-truck struck the center median, sending concrete debris spilling into the northbound lanes. UHP says multiple vehicles were damaged by the flying debris.
Later on, officials say a Union Pacific train also struck the fallen power lines. All train service has been halted at this time due to the incident.
Lanes along I-15 in both directions were closed at the time, but northbound lanes have since reopened. Currently, only one southbound lane has been reopened as crews work to clear the scene.
Drivers headed in the area can use Legacy Parkway as an alternate route of travel in the area.
Travelers are asked to plan ahead for traffic delays or seek an alternate route of travel at this time.
No injuries have been reported and crews are working to determine the cause of the fallen powerline.
