Big Rig Hauling Toilet Paper and Dog Food Rolls Down Embankment

Spanish Fork Canyon, UT – Two people were airlifted to a hospital after their semi-truck rolled down a 100′ embankment in Spanish Fork Canyon on Friday.

The incident occurred on April 24 around 7:20 p.m. at the U.S. 89 and U.S. 6 junction.

Authorities said a man and a woman were inside the truck at the time of the accident.




 

While their identities were not released, photos from the scene reveal the truck belonged to Springfield, MO-based Wilson Logistics.

Local news outlet 2KUTV reported the driver and passenger were seen walking around the accident scene directly afterwards, calling their injuries “minor.”

However, the Utah County Fire Marshal (UCFM) tweeted a video of the individuals being airlifted from the scene.

UCFM called the injuries “critical” in its tweet.




 

According to the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP), the truck was hauling a load of toilet paper and dog food.

UHP has not yet indicated what led to the crash.
