A semi-trailer rig accident restricted the flow of traffic at the height of the Tuesday morning commute near an Interstate 15 off-ramp in Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City police Sgt. Shawn Josephson said the rig reportedly lost its load, a fuel tanker trailer that then overturned and blocked some lanes at 600 North and 400 West, near the 600 North off-ramp from I-15.

No injuries were reported, and initial fears of fuel leaking from the tanker proved unfounded, Josephson said.

The cause of the one-vehicle, 8:05 a.m. accident was under investigation.
