OGDEN — Law enforcement personnel were kept busy responding to a number of accidents on icy roads Saturday night in Weber and Davis counties.
The Weber County Sheriff’s Office had handled three weather-related crashes as of 8:30 p.m.
Two of the accidents occurred on State Road 39 near Huntsville and in the South Fork Canyon area, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Stettler. Both crashes occurred around 6:45 p.m.
The Huntsville accident involved a car, and the South Fork Canyon crash involved a truck pulling a trailer. In each instance, the vehicles slid off the highway, resulting in minor injuries, Stettler said.
Another accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. at 2100 East and U.S. 89, Sheriff’s Sgt. Dave Creager said.
A 1998 Mazda pickup truck was traveling southwest on an icy section of the highway, lost control, rolled once and landed upright.
The driver and lone occupant, a 22-year-old Kaysville woman, was transported by ambulance to McKay-Dee Hospital with apparent minor injuries. She was wearing her seat belt, Creager said.
There were 10 accidents on Interstate 15 and U.S. 89 between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Ashley Creighton.
One of the most serious crashes occurred on I-15 near the 700 South exit.
A car went off the west side of the road and nearly rolled over. The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle and sustained minor injuries, Creighton said.
