SALT LAKE CITY — A semi-truck has slowed down some people’s morning commute in Salt Lake City after it jackknifed and forced the closure of Interstate 215.

The Utah Department of Transportation closed all I-215 eastbound lanes. The department on Twitter urged drivers to slow down and use caution.

The station reports several crashes prompted the closure of I-15 at multiple points in Davis, Salt Lake and Utah counties.
