County Sheriff’s Report

Excessive speed was partly to blame for a rollover crash Wednesday night on State Road 248 near Park City, firefighters said.

"The road heading up that hill toward Brown’s Canyon was just black ice and traffic was probably five or 10 miles per hour," Park City Fire District Battalion Chief Mark Billmire said. "This car was probably just going a little bit too fast. I think he just hit a patch of ice, slid off and rolled over."

The driver of the late model Toyota sedan suffered only minor injuries and was not treated at the scene, Billmire said.

"I was glad to see traffic slowed down because usually in these first storms people forget how to drive in the snow and ice," he said.
