TOOELE, Utah (AP) - A transport truck loaded with eight cars rolled on I-80 near Tooele, slowing the morning commute.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OLNvE2 ) that Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Chamberlin Neff said the truck driver was unfamiliar with the area and may have been traveling too fast when the truck crashed around 4:30 Friday morning.

Chamberlin said the man drove onto the left shoulder of the highway and the truck started to fishtail.

Then it hit a concrete barrier and rolled, causing the bed of the truck to disconnected and launch one of the cars onto the median.

Another car was traveling behind the truck and hit the dislodged vehicle.

Chamberlin says both the truck drivers were wearing seat belts. No serious injuries were reported.

The eastbound road is closed while UHP clears the wreck.
