Traffic was at a standstill for those traveling southeast from Carbon County around 1 p.m. on Wednesday due to an accident that occurred at mile post 269 outside Green River.
Cars were at a standstill for more than three miles of the highway and for a number of hours while first responders worked diligently. More than five vehicles were included in the accident, which reportedly began when a pick-up truck pulling a trailer jack-knifed.
Although the cleanup and number of vehicles involved in the accident were significant, there were no major injuries to be reported; one out-of-area female was said to be transferred to the local hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
