FARR WEST — A car crash is causing major delays in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Farr West. 

Around 4 p.m., a crash involving multiple vehicles occurred on the interstate near milepost 349, according to a tweet from the Utah Department of Transportation. 

One semitrailer and at least two other vehicles were involved in the crash, according to Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Nick Street.

Street said two people were taken via ambulance to McKay-Dee Hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries. Other injuries have been reported but were said to be non-life threatening. 

A medical helicopter was called to the scene but was called off as responders decided ground ambulances would be just as fast, according to Street. 

Street said he did not have a specific number of people injured or the extent of all the injuries. 

Street said it will likely take investigators several hours to clear the crash scene. 

The Weber Fire District is reporting that a total of eight passenger vehicles and the semitrailer were involved in the crash. 

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
