Snowy Wintertime Driving Conditions Contribute to Traffic Mishaps Occurring Along U.S. Highway 6 in Price, Spanish Fork Canyons

Winter snow and icy road conditions combine to create traffic risks for motorists traveling along U.S. Highway 6 from Price to Spanish Fork last Friday. A pickup truck slid off the highway a few miles up Price Canyon at about 6 p.m. on Jan. 27, resulting in minor injuries to the occupant. At Soldier Summit, blowing snow caused near white out conditions at times. Wet from the Tucker rest stop to the Sheep Creek Junction, the road turned into a sheet of ice as vehicles entered Red Narrows. A car from Carbon County collided with a semi-truck at sharp curve at the location where the truck explosion took place last summer. The icy wintertime traveling conditions continued to the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon and multiple accidents occurred all the way to Moark Junction, where a semi-truck had reportedly gone off the roadway.
