Utah Highway Patrol responded to 26 injury crashes and 117 property damage crashes from Weber to Utah Counties over the weekend.

Seventeen injury accidents and 71 property damage crashes were reported in Salt Lake County alone. Another 37 property damage crashes were reported in Davis County.

Three straight days of falling snow thrust Utah drivers into a new mode of defensive driving and vehicle handling.

Numerous accidents and slide-offs were reported, grinding traffic to a halt at times as emergency crews worked to clear accident scenes.

What some are calling the best snow storm to jump-start Utah’s ski industry is just the beginning of another Utah winter where drivers need to be prepared and ready for the elements.
