UTAH (KKCO) - A semi accident just inside the Utah border had cleanup crews scraping a saucy mess from the roadway.
Utah Highway Patrol says a semi truck carrying a load of tomatoes flipped going around a bend around 4 a.m. Tuesday near mile marker 229, spilling its load all over the highway.
A car, carrying three children, then hit the flipped truck, the family inside was treated for minor injuries on scene. The driver of the semi also had minor injures.
The interstate was closed eastbound from 4 to 8 a.m. until crews were able to open the shoulder of the road to let traffic start flowing through. The interstate is now fully reopened.
The tomatoes were bound for Loveland, Colo.
