No one was injured, but a three-vehicle crash Thursday morning closed down a northeastern Utah section of snowy Interstate 80.

Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said the crash — involving two semi trailer rigs and a Subaru — occurred just before 7 a.m. on westbound I-80 between Echo Junction and Emory, roughly 55 miles east of Salt Lake City.

While no injuries were reported, the wreckage forced troopers to close down all lanes and detour westbound traffic around the accident scene for about an hour.
