At least two people were killed in accidents after a winter storm hit Utah over the weekend.

The storm that hit late Friday and early Saturday dumped more than 7 inches of snow on Layton, 4 inches in Tooele and about 1 inch in Salt Lake City and was blamed for more than 100 accidents.

Around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, Jamie Wollschlagger, 20, of Roy, was killed when the she was driving spun out of control while exiting Interstate 15 in Kaysville and was broadsided by a semitrailer, said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Dan Rosenhan.

A passenger was taken to Ogden Regional Medical Center in serious condition, Rosenhan said.

The second fatality happened in Tooele County when a driver lost control of his car, which rolled into water alongside Interstate 80. Allen Lewis, 43, drowned, Rosenhan said.

A female passenger was able to escape the car and was transported to LDS Hospital with serious head injuries, Rosenhan said.

"Drive prudently," Rosenhan said. "When the weather creates these kinds of conditions, we all need to adjust our driving accordingly."

Rosenhan said most of the 120 accidents were vehicles sliding off the road on highways between Utah and Weber counties.
