20-Car Pileup Shuts Down Highway Lanes Near Salt Lake City

Up to 20 vehicles were involved in a crash on Interstate 15 in Murray, just south of Salt Lake City, on Saturday, April 8.

Fox 13 reported a 35-year-old man was speeding, lost control of his car, hydroplaned and slammed into a concrete barrier. The crash triggered a chain reaction as cars behind the speeding driver braked to avoid collision. A semi-trailer was also involved.

The highway was shut down for a brief time period, but one lane was soon reopened. Officials with the Utah Department of Public Safety encouraged drivers to avoid the area completely. This video was taken from an open lane. Credit: Facebook/Betty Verdugo via Storyful
