Park City police involved in accident, other crashes reported

The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of slide-offs and other traffic accidents.

One of the cases, on Jan. 15 at 5:17 p.m., involved a Police Department vehicle. Phil Kirk, a police captain, said an officer was responding to a traffic accident on Royal Street, driving southbound on Deer Valley Drive. Another driver turned left from lower Main Street onto Deer Valley Drive, Kirk said. The two vehicles collided, he said.

The officer was not injured. The driver of the other vehicle suffered a cut on her head, Kirk said. The Utah Highway Patrol was summoned to investigate.

Some of the other accidents reported last week included:

  • on Jan. 17 at 9:20 a.m. along Deer Valley Drive
  • on Jan. 16 at 9:10 p.m. on Park Avenue
  • on Jan. 15 at 11:25 a.m. on Deer Valley Drive
  • on Jan. 14 at 7:21 a.m. on S.R. 248

  • on Jan. 13 at 3:11 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street and King Road
  • on Jan. 12 at 5:14 p.m. on Park Avenue

    Kirk said none of the accidents involved serious injuries. He said roads were slick last week.

    Some of the slide-offs, meanwhile, included reports on Sunday, Jan. 17 at 12:40 a.m. at the intersection of Heber Avenue and Swede Alley, 11:47 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16 on S.R. 224, Jan. 16 at 9:17 p.m. on Woodside Avenue and Jan. 16 at 1:02 p.m. on Marsac Avenue close to the runaway truck ramp.
