Fog-slickened roads likely were factors in two crashes on northern Utah interstate freeways during Monday morning's commute.
While the official causes of the Salt Lake Valley crashes remained under investigation, both occurred in areas targeted by the Utah Department of Transportation for a Road Weather Alert warning of "areas of dense fog and road ice" that made driving treacherous.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said both an SUV and a sedan lost control at 7:05 a.m. as they traveled westbound on Interstate 215, on an on-ramp near 6200 South in Murray. The vehicles crashed into a barrier wall but neither driver suffered serious injury.
