(KSL News) Snowfall in northern Utah made for a slick commute in some areas. More than a dozen accidents plagued the morning commute.
The worst one happened on westbound 215 at 2100 south. A car hit the rail on the side of the freeway. Then another car did the same thing, and a third car ran into it. When one of the drivers got out to inspect damage, another car hit him.
The 36-year-old man was taken to the hospital, but his condition is now stable.
It was also slow going on I-80 west of Salt Lake City, as the Tooele area had slick roads as well.
KSL Newsradio reports Utah County got hit hard, too. The Point of the Mountain was reportedly slushy. Surface streets in Utah County were snowpacked and some were difficult to maneuver.
UHP troopers say UDOT has all its plows out, but they're having a tough time keeping up with the snow. They say drivers need to slow down.
