UTAH, Feb. 13, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Three people were transported with minor injuries after a multi-vehicle collision Saturday in Salt Lake County.
The accident was called in at 4:17 p.m. in the area of State Route 201 and about 1900 West, Trooper Chris Bishop told Gephardt Daily.
But, all in all, Saturday had a low number of accidents when compared to a typical snow day, Bishop said. A UPH tweet said that between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Saturday, troopers handled just 70 crashes across the state.
“It’s low for a typical snow day,” Bishop said. “It’s a fairly low number, which we’re very happy about. On a more typical snow day, it might have been more like 250, or even more if it was a Monday or Tuesday.
“No crashes would be ideal, of course,” he said.
Crash numbers for Saturday:
From about 9:00am to 4:30PM Troopers handled 70 crashes across the state. This is high for a typical Saturday but not as high as a typical snow day. #slowdownmoveover #driveslowinthesnow #increaseyourfollowingdistace
