(KSL News) An accident involving several vehicles is caused heavy traffic delays on southbound I-15 at 13200 South this afternoon.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers say a pickup truck was traveling southbound while pulling a boat behind it when the boat came loose. A Ford pickup truck traveling behind the first truck was unable to stop and hit the boat.

After hitting the boat, the Ford veered into another lane of traffic and into a tractor-trailer. This second collision caused the Ford to roll into the median.

The driver of the Ford escaped with minor injuries and was taken to Alta View Hospital for treatment.
