Iced-over windows blamed for traffic accident in Prospector
The Park City Police Department blames iced-over windows for a traffic accident at about 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7.
According to the department, a 21-year-old man from Park City was driving a vehicle with frost on its front and back windshields and its side windows. The man scraped a portal in the ice on the driver side and was making a left-hand turn onto Bonanza Drive from Prospector Avenue.
The police say that the driver saw a turning vehicle on Bonanza Drive but, because of the ice on the windows, did not realize that the other vehicle was pulling a trailer. The driver struck the trailer, the police say.
The police ticketed the man with the iced-over windows on a count of failing to yield.
No injuries were reported.
