LOGAN — A semi-truck crash in Logan Canyon, US-89, partially closed the highway Wednesday afternoon. The accident occurred near Second Dam, around mile post 464.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jason Kendrick said the semi was traveling westbound, when it drifted off the side of the road and rolled onto its side.

No other vehicles were involved.

The driver of the truck was not injured.

The semi was hauling a trailer with 70,000 lbs. of farm equipment.

Troopers shut down eastbound traffic at the mouth of the canyon, while westbound traffic was being diverted around the crash.

Kendrick explained the canyon had to be partially closed so crews could use a crane to unload the trailer. Troopers also wanted to make sure skiers would still be able to drive home from Beaver Mountain.

It took crews several hours to clear the wreckage. The canyon was reopened at 8 p.m.
