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.
