SALT LAKE CITY -- There have been several weather-related crashes Thursday morning, all across northern Utah.

For the second day in a row, a snowstorm is making for a very slow and treacherous morning commute.

Reportable crashes are crashes involving at least $1500 damage to a vehicle and/or causing some type of personal injury and/or damage to government property.
