UTAH COUNTY, Utah — Less than a 1/16 of an inch of snow caused more than two dozen accidents on a mile-and-a-half stretch of southbound I-15 leaving Orem to Center Street in Provo Friday morning.

Several crashes involved multiple vehicles which blocked more than half the freeway, with cars facing backward and sideways across lanes of travel. Other accidents were single vehicles spinning out and hitting the barriers.

All of this caused over two miles of stopped traffic through the S-curves of southbound I-15. But there were also several crashes on northbound 15 from Payson into Springville, none of which caused delays.

This is a big reason why traffic is at a standstill on I-15 SB through Provo. This is at the Center Street exit.

Crash SB 15 near Center Street in Provo. Roads are snowy/icy contributing to this crash where one car is facing backwards and another sideways in center lanes.
