Two lanes of northbound Interstate 15 have reopened after a Wednesday morning crash past Jean, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

The injury crash involving two semitrailers had temporarily shut down northbound traffic.

The two lanes of the affected stretch of I-15 reopened by noon.

The crash was reported about 4:20 a.m. near mile marker 14, according to Highway Patrol records. Northbound I-15 traffic was being diverted off at the Jean exit.

A woman was taken to University Medical Center. She’s expected to survive.

One of the trailers was hauling carpet, which spilled.
