(KSL News) -- Small bits of slush caused a potentially dangerous situation on Interstate 215 this morning.

Troopers were called to the area around 6200 south after a couple of vehicles had slid off the road. Crews were working those accidents when a third happened.

Michelle McLaughlin, UHP: "I had a semi pass and a small car was on th other side in the fast lane and hit a piece of slush, lost control, and slid backwards. Almost hit this fire chief and I had just barely backed my car up and it just missed my car too."

Troopers say drivers need to remember to slow down when the roads are wet. And just because the snow plows have come through, doesn't mean there aren't patches of snow and slush left on the road.
