RICH COUNTY, Utah – Highway 30 near Laketown is closed in both directions Saturday after a semi-truck carrying a propane tank lost control and went off the road.

Utah Highway Patrol officials said the semi went off the road at Sage Creek Junction just before noon on Saturday.

The tank has leaked propane, and haz-mat teams have been working to clean up the spill. The cause of the accident is unknown at this time.

Officials weren’t sure when the road would be reopened, but they said they hoped to have it open again by Sunday.
