A few slide-offs reported as one of the first snowstorms hits
The Park City Police Department responded to a few accidents blamed on slippery roads on Sunday, in what was one of the first snowstorms of the season to leave enough snow to make driving tricky.
It did not appear from public police logs that any of the accidents was serious, and the department indicated that many of them were slide-offs. There are typically a number of weather-related accidents during the first snowstorms of the season.
Some of the accidents reported to the Police Department included:
A slide-off at the Deer Valley Drive-Swede Alley intersection at 10:04 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22.
A slide-off at Quinn’s Junction at 9:07 p.m. on Sunday.
