OGDEN -- A weekend storm that blanketed Northern Utah with snow caused plenty of crashes along Interstate 15 but didn't produce any serious injuries or deaths, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
It was particularly busy for the UHP late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, said Trooper Lawrence Hopper.
"We were going from crash to crash," he said.
Between 9 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday, there were 37 crashes in Davis County with five injuries, while Weber County had two crashes resulting in two injuries.
By comparison, there were 71 accidents in Salt Lake County, causing 17 injuries, while Utah County had seven crashes and two injuries.
The lack of serious injuries may be attributed to motorists wearing their seatbelts, Hopper said.
He added that UHP wants motorists to obey a new law regarding fender benders.
When a crash occurs on the freeway, motorists involved should first phone 911 to report the accident. If there are no injuries and vehicles are drivable, the motorists should drive slowly on the shoulder to the next exit, Hopper said.
While the storm caused problems on highways, there were no reports of power outages Sunday night in Davis or Weber counties, according to Rocky Mountain Power's website.
The snowfall, which was heavy at times, was caused by a cold Pacific storm, according to the National Weather Service.
The snowfall was welcomed by Utah ski resorts.
Brighton Resort will open Tuesday as a result of more than 4 feet of snow over the weekend. The Explorer, Majestic and Snake Creek Express chairlifts at Brighton will open at 9 am Tuesday. The Crest chairlift is scheduled to open Wednesday.
Powder Mountain Resort and Snowbasin Resort each received 14 inches of new snow since Friday. Powder Mountain plans to open Nov. 21, and Snowbasin expects to open Nov. 22.
