UTAH COUNTY, Utah – Rescue crews were dispatched to a car accident during the weekend snowstorm. Unlike a typical two-car crash, this operation required snowmobiles and side by sides.

Utah County Sheriff’s Office dispatched crews about 8 p.m. Sunday night to Highland Boulevard. They said the road was impassable due to the snow.

Search and rescue crews from the county assisted in the recovery of several stuck vehicles and were able to locate vehicles without any passengers.
