CEDAR CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A couple of crashes have shutdown part of I-15 in Southern Utah.

Traffic is being diverted to Enterprise off of I-15 just west of Cedar City, and then south to St. George because of a fuel-tanker roll-over near milepost 40.

The Utah Highway Patrol says the driver of the Maverik gasoline tanker may have been impaired at the time of the crash.

A second crash involving semi-trucks on I-15 was blocking traffic near milepost 39.

If you are driving between Cedar City and St. George Wednesday morning, be sure to give yourself extra time because of the delays.

For the latest traffic and road conditions call 511 or go to udot.utah.gov.
