Update:

Roden did not have an estimate of when the lane would reopen.

JUAB COUNTY, Utah – A semi-truck carrying appliances traveled northbound on I-15 at MP 216, approximately 7 miles before Nephi.

The crash happened at 4:25 a.m. Monday morning, blocking all northbound lanes. Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Cameron Roden said the driver was in critical condition.

A medical helicopter was called to evacuate the driver. The right lane of I-15 opened just after 7 a.m. while crews cleared the truck and debris from the left lane.

Cameron said: ‘We suspect he fell asleep, left the road to the right. Rolled when it came back on the road.

However, the investigation is ongoing. UDOT expects the left lane to remain closed until noon today.
