Weekend storm on its way out

Winter storms continued through Saturday, which caused several accidents, but the storm system appears to be on the way out.

A cold front came through Saturday morning, and snow fell through Saturday night, but the storm was mostly cleared away by Sunday afternoon. Another weaker storm system is expected to move into northern Utah on Monday night and into Tuesday.

The winter road conditions lead to several car crashes and slide-offs throughout the Wasatch Front on Saturday.

In Salt Lake County there were 63 incidents leading to property damage, 6 leading to personal injury, and 10 slide-offs. In Utah County there were 14 incidents that led to damage and one vehicle slide-off. In Davis County there were 10 accidents with property damage. In Weber County there were 15 accidents with damages.

A Utah Highway Patrol trooper’s car was hit on Saturday afternoon in Ogden. This was the 16th trooper’s vehicle to be hit this year.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) reminds commuters to be careful traveling around accident sites. Drivers are urged to reduce speeds and stay further behind the vehicles ahead during winter driving conditions.
