A tractor-trailer carrying a family of eight tipped over Friday afternoon, injuring two in Box Elder County.

The crash jostled the two parents and six children inside the cab. The mom had back injuries and one of her sons suffered a broken leg. The two were transported to the hospital, one was taken by helicopter and another by ground ambulance to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.

The ramp was closed for several hours before being cleaned up.
