Salt Lake County car accidents- There were numerous car accidents throughout Salt Lake County because of the recent snow storms. News media reported that there was at least 75 crashes on Wednesday alone with more snow expected on Thursday, December 27th. A couple of the accident involved vehicles hitting police vehicles. The major factor for many of these crashes was driving too fast for conditions. People need to drive slower when there is snow and icy conditions. It is better to get somewhere safe then not to arrive at all. If we all drive a little bit slower , we can avoid these Salt Lake County car accidents. That will make the holiday season more enjoyable for all of us. Even if you are not injured in one of these Salt Lake County car accidents, you still have to deal with the inconvenience of having your car fixed. Is it more important to be a few minutes late to wherever you are going, or better yet to try and leave 15 minutes early, so you don’t have to drive fast in treacherous conditions.

One of the biggest Salt Lake County car accidents involved a semi-truck that blocked several lanes of traffic in Draper, Utah on I-15. Apparently another vehicle lost control, as they were driving too fast for conditions, which caused that vehicle to strike the semi-truck. The semi-truck then tipped over And blocked several lanes of traffic.  Only the HOV lane was open initially, but after a couple hours 2 additional lanes of traffic were opened. All of the lanes of traffic were not open until later that day for news reports.
