TAYLORSVILLE, Utah – Wet roadways caused a rollover crash in Taylorsville on Friday.

Unified Police say a small SUV was traveling eastbound on 4700 South near 3700 West just before noon when the driver moved into the right lane into some slush, causing the driver to lose control. The car hit the curb, then tipped onto its side, crashing through a fence at a home on the side of the street.

The three occupants in the vehicle – two adults and a six-month-old baby – were all wearing seat belts and no one was injured.

“Fortunately in this case these occupants in the vehicle were uninjured as well, all of them were wearing seat belts and the baby was in a car seat,” said Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.

Police warn drivers to be aware of where slush and extra snow is on the roads during the winter months, and to try to stay in lanes where the roads have been cleared.
