Officials closed two lanes of traffic Thursday morning after a truck crashed into construction barrels on Interstate 15 near Lehi.

A white pickup truck crashed into the barrels around 8 a.m. on southbound I-15 near mile marker 283, said Sgt. Nick Street with the Utah Highway Patrol. The vehicle also hit a concrete barrier and pushed the barrier partway into traffic.

No injuries were reported, and the crash caused a heavy slowdown for morning commuters. Officials are still determining the cause of the crash and removing debris from the highway.

The right lanes and an exit ramp at 2100 North were closed until the concrete barrier could be moved back into place, Street reported.
