Massive snowfall occurred in Northern parts of Utah Monday, leaving the region covered in a heavy snow blanket. The accumulating snow has resulted in bumper-to-bumper traffic, and multiple vehicular crashes have been reported in the aftermath of road congestion.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Cameron Roden said Utah saw 114 weather-related car crashes by 7 p.m. Monday, KSL reported. A winter storm with blowing snow moved into the northern valleys of the state Monday afternoon, according to ABC4.

Crashes were reported on the southbound Interstate 15 roads in Millard and Davis Counties, as per UDOT Traffic's latest update.

Two crashes were reported in Utah County around the same time: one in Sevier and another in Tooele County. Other counties that witnessed crashes and lane closures included Salt Lake, Summit, Box Elder, Millard, Weber, Uintah, Juab and Davis.

Roadway restrictions due to bad weather were reported in several areas. Drivers of all vehicles were asked to use gripping equipment. A power outage affected traffic in both directions on I-80 in Salt Lake County earlier in the evening.

Multiple crashes led to the closure of 4500 South Road in both directions in the county around the same time, and drivers were advised to use alternate routes.

The following highways and freeways will most likely be affected Tuesday, as per UDOT:

  • I-15: From the Utah-Idaho border to Parowan

The bad weather and the resulting traffic issues may continue.

The first storm is expected to arrive by Dec. 3, while the other one may follow during the weekend.
