The semi was heading southbound on I-15 to go east on Highway 6 when it overturned, according to a tweet from the UHP. The semi apparently was traveling faster than the posted cautionary speed limit of 30 mph, according to UHP.

About 78 head of cattle were in the trailer. Three are confirmed dead, according to troopers.

The ramp from southbound I-15 to Highway 6 remained closed, so crews could clear the scene, until about 6:30 p.m.
