SALT LAKE COUNTY — A woman suffered serious injury in a crash involving a motorcycle on northbound I-15 near Point of the Mountain Saturday evening, slowing traffic in the area.

Utah Highway Patrol said a 56-year-old woman on a motorcycle collided with the back of a car after the vehicle in front of her slowed down suddenly. It is unclear why the vehicle slowed, but officials say it may have been due to traffic.
