Crashes Cause Commute Headaches Across Northern Utah
FARR WEST, Utah – All southbound Interstate 15 lanes were closed in Weber County after multiple crashes were reported in the area, and crashes in Parleys Canyon caused heavy delays in both directions Tuesday.
Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said troopers responded to five crashes near milepost 352 in northern Weber County and one person was injured.
Officials with the National Weather Service said a band of lake-enhanced snow moved across the area shortly before the crashes.
Slick roads were reported across the Wasatch Front after rain and light snow swept across the area Tuesday.
⚠️Parleys Canyon is a mess!⚠️
Worst I’ve seen it in a long time. East lane closures for a crash near Lamb Canyon.
Give yourself a lot of extra time if you need to head this way. It was estimated to be cleared by now but delays are continuing. pic.twitter.com/6PUUIeXeM9
