A series of snow-related crashes and slide-offs Saturday night throughout Weber County kept law enforcement busy.
About 6 p.m., a vehicle crashed into the rear of a Utah Transit Authority bus on Powder Mountain Road south of Powder Mountain Ski Resort, said Weber County Sheriff's Sgt. Ryon Hadley.
Thirty minutes later, in separate incidents, two vehicles slid off the road into ditches near 2700 North and 2500 West in Farr West.
Traffic was delayed near the intersection for a short time while the accident was investigated and the vehicles were pulled out of the ditch.
There was also a minor weather-related hit-and-run accident about 7:15 p.m. Saturday near 1200 West and 1200 South in Marriott-Slaterville. One vehicle bumped another vehicle and then left the scene, said Hadley. No one was hurt.
About 8:25 p.m., a vehicle slid off the road near the same intersection and hit an electrical power box, Hadley said.
The constant stream of crashes and slide-offs taxed deputies.
"It thins out our resources," Hadley said. "We have that many less officers available to handle serious calls, but we were able to handle all the calls with no problem."
The Weber Area Dispatch Center handled 18 calls, mostly weather-
related, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
The Davis County Sheriff's Office dispatch center reported about 15 weather-related traffic accidents and slide-offs from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., mostly on Interstate 15. Crash totals for earlier Saturday were not available.
There were no major injuries reported in any of the accidents.
Hazardous driving conditions may continue throughout the area today.
A winter storm warning remains in effect for Northern Utah until 11 p.m. today, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City. Snow accumulations could total 12 to 20 inches.
Snow will be heavy at times and will continue off and on before tapering off tonight, the National Weather Service indicates.
Motorists are urged to use caution and should keep a winter storm kit in their vehicle in case of emergency.
