Southbound I-15 in North Salt Lake reopens after 11-car pileup

NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah — Utah Highway Patrol have reopened southbound I-15 in North Salt Lake after a crash involving eleven cars forced a closure Wednesday morning.

According to Utah Department of Transportation spokesman John Gleason, the crash occurred near milepost 311, which is close to the 2300 N exit.

“The main thing was speed too fast for the conditions. The roads are slick today, it’s cold. Even though one section of the roadway might seem fine at the time, a mile down the road, it could be a trouble spot,” said Lt. Danny Allen, UHP.

Traffic was diverted off the freeway at 2300 N.

A UHP representative said some of the people involved suffered minor injuries.
