(KSL News) -- It was a foggy morning commute.

UHP Trooper: "Gotta slow down. Even though the roads look dry, not even dry, just wet, it doesn't mean they're not slick."

Ice crystals in the fog, crushed under car tires, made for slick, slick roads.

Fog Causes Chaos on Valley Roads

There were 33 crashes before 10 o'clock this morning. That's how bad the foggy commute was for drivers.

Five of the accidents left several people injured.

And later in the morning, on I-15, weather was part of the reason an armored truck bounced between the sidewalls of the freeway at about 3300 South.

No one was injured, but all the money inside had to be securely transferred in order to clean up that scene.
