(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Snowy roadways are a recipe for disaster for Utah drivers.

130 car accidents were reported in Davis, Weber and Morgan Counties Wednesday as a snowstorm moved in. Most of them were reported in the early hours during the morning commute.

Davis County reported five rollover accidents. There was a jackknifed semitrailer on Interstate-15 near Farmington that snarled traffic, and there were numerous slide-offs reported.

Fortunately, there were no fatalities.

When a storm moved through in late December, more than 12-hundred accidents were reported in two days on Utah highways.
