I-15 traffic backs up due to 3-car crash

A three-car crash on I-15 had traffic tied up for a couple of hours early Thursday. There were no serious injuries.

About 6:15 a.m. a vehicle traveling southbound on I-15 near 8000 South crashed into the concrete barricade on the shoulder, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Derek Jensen. The vehicle bounced off the wall back into traffic and hit a second car, Jensen said.

The first vehicle then continued across the lanes of traffic and hit a third car.

Just one lane of traffic was open while the crashes were cleaned up. All those involved were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Jensen said investigators were looking Thursday at fatigue as a possible factor in the original crash.
