SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Crashes in the Salt Lake Valley and Park City are significantly slowing traffic as drivers navigate slick roads during the Monday morning commute.

Park City

A head-on collision on state Route 224 at Olympic Parkway forced a partial closure of the road shortly after 7:30 a.m., according to the KSL Traffic Center. Commuters squeezed by on the right shoulder, causing traffic to back up to I-80, east of Kimball Junction. A few lanes were reopened about 8:05 a.m.

The crash caused minor injuries, though one patient was transported to the hospital. Two others were also injured, according to Utah Highway Patrol trooper Colton Freckleton.

Officials estimated the road would reopen about 8:30 a.m., though delays may remain.

Salt Lake Valley

Wasatch Boulevard between Big and Little Cottonwood canyons is a parking lot for several miles as many in Utah appear to be heading to the ski resorts, the KSL Traffic Center reports.

Northbound Redwood Road also closed at 700 North about 7:30 a.m. following a crash.

Further details of the crash and any injuries have not yet been confirmed.
