That includes a fatal wreck in Cache County where a 70-year-old woman died after losing control of her vehicle and slamming into a semi-truck.
The woman, identified as Phyllis B. Belles, of Logan, was riding in the passenger seat of a Subaru Forester when the "Subaru lost control and crossed into the southbound lanes," UHP said in a press release.
The car crashed with a semi truck headed northbound, going under the 53-foot trailer's rear wheels.
The first semi-truck slid off the roadway in Laketown Canyon. A deputy pulled over to help the semi driver.
UHP says a second semi carrying flour lost control and slid into the deputy's vehicle.
The deputy's injuries are not life-threatening. He was transported to Logan Regional Hospital for treatment.
UHP reports the semis spun out of control while traveling too fast for winter weather conditions.
In northern Utah, I-15 was shut down near the Weber County and Box Elder County border after several semi-trucks crashed in the area.
As snow continues to fall, troopers urge drivers to drive slow and avoid high traffic areas.
