Park City drivers swerve to avoid skis on road
The Park City Police Department last week responded to at least two unrelated cases involving debris on roads.
On Thursday, Dec. 7 at 4:31 p.m., someone reported skis were in the road on northbound S.R. 224, apparently close to the Meadows Drive intersection. Drivers were swerving to avoid the skis, the police were told. The skis were gone when an officer arrived.
On Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 12:34 p.m., a concrete block the size of a basketball was reported to be in a northbound lane of S.R. 224 at or close to the Meadows Drive intersection. The Police Department indicated the concrete presented a traffic hazard.
On Dec. 6 at 11:29 p.m., meanwhile, a vehicle became stuck on a rock in a parking lot on Deer Valley Drive. The police said a tow truck should be called, according to department logs. The logs did not provide details about the rock, such as whether it was placed there for decorative purposes.
