HEBER CITY -- A nine-car crash in heavy fog in Wasatch County sent one person to the hospital and forced the closure of part of State Route 189 for several hours in Provo Canyon on Saturday.
Police say a pickup truck pulling a trailer with snowmobiles was headed north on State Route 189 along Deer Creek when he missed a turn and hit a guardrail about 7:20 a.m. Saturday.
Due to the poor visibility, several other vehicles were unable to stop in time and ended up crashing into each other.
One driver avoided the collisions and stopped to help along with his 15-year-old son. But the teenager was struck by another oncoming vehicle and suffered a broken leg.
Northbound traffic was rerouted until the lanes reopened before noon.
