A rollover crash on Interstate 15 in Layton temporarily shut down the right southbound lanes and nearby Frontrunner tracks.

A southbound truck rolled at mile marker 330 at about 4 p.m. Friday, hitting a barrier on the right, said Susan Thomas, spokeswoman for the Utah Department of Public Safety.

Law enforcement was also concerned of possible hazardous materials and shut down the southbound lanes at the site of the crash to deal with the accident, Thomas said, though she could not immediately elaborate on any details.

The truck wound up close to the Frontrunner tracks, forcing the Utah Transit Authority to stop train traffic between the Layton and Farmington stations and move passengers between the two spots with buses. Service returned to normal once the scene was cleared shortly after 5 p.m.
