Storm leads to more than 200 crashes statewide

Remember people – when the snow falls on the ground, the ground gets all slippery.

SALT LAKE CITY — Another big winter storm packed a punch across the Wasatch Front Sunday, bringing the kinds of conditions many drivers find difficult to handle.

Many motorists took to the road and soon found themselves on the side of it. The Utah Highway Patrol reported more than 300 slide-offs and crashes in 11 counties across the state. Of the 359 crashes reported, 57 involved injuries, 239 caused vehicle damage and 63 were slide-offs.

This would also be a good time to make sure you have a vehicle emergency kit, perhaps a blanket or two, some food and water, and perhaps a candle for heat.  It would be pretty lousy to be caught unawares by a snowstorm and die, since this happens every single winter.
