WEBER COUNTY, Utah, April 8, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — The Weber County Sheriff‘s Office has provided a brief update on the Thursday night single-vehicle accident that occurred on the North Ogden Divide.
WCSO responded to the scene at 9:30 p.m., after the vehicle, occupied by two people, lost control on the winding road, crossing oncoming lanes of traffic before rolling down an approximately 100-foot embankment and coming to rest on its roof, the WCSO news release says.
