Travel on Highway 6 was reduced to a single lane Friday morning near Utah County’s Soldier Summit when a semi-rig’s trailer tipped over.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said the cause of the accident was under investigation, but for some reason the eastbound truck’s second of two trailers loaded with paint tipped over at the summit about 6:30 a.m.

The driver was not injured, no other drivers were involved, and none of the paint leaked.

UHP expected traffic through the accident scene to resume to normal by noon, after the trailer is uprighted and wreckage cleared.
