MIDVALE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - A trailer came off a pickup truck's hitch, causing a major pile up on Interstate 15.

The pickup truck was on I-15 near 600 South in Midvale when the trailer came off, hit the barrier and then came back and hit the truck that was pulling it. The accident caused a chain reaction involving several other vehicles, including a semi truck and an RV. Amazingly, only minor injuries were reported.  

"If you're towing a trailer, make sure you have some knowledge and experience, and make sure it is properly hooked up so it doesn't come undone," said Sgt. Nathan Croft with the Utah Highway Patrol.

The crash remains under investigation and police are not sure if anyone will be cited for the accident.
