CLEARFIELD -- A four-vehicle accident slowed an already congested commute on northbound Interstate 15 on Thursday.
Traffic slowed until it came to a stop near Mile Marker 335 because of the highway construction, when a Chevrolet Monte Carlo did not stop in time and ran into the back of a pickup truck around 5 p.m., said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Owen Horn.
A second pickup truck then rear-ended the Monte Carlo, which caused a chain reaction that pushed the first truck into the back of a Ford Explorer, Horn said.
Troopers shut down the left lane until they could clear the scene. No one was injured in the crashes.
The drivers of the Monte Carlo and the second pickup truck were cited for following too close. Their vehicles were also towed.
