Breck said a semi coming up on the SUV tried to maneuver out of the way, and wound up hitting the concrete barrier on the right side of the road and bouncing back to the left. The semi jackknifed.
It was then that an Associated Food Stores truck came upon the mess, hitting the first semi, Break said.
At press time, investigators were still on scene. Conse-quently, Breck had no names or ages of those involved, but he said each of the three vehicles had one male occupant. None were injured.
"It's really slippery out here," Breck said. Simul-taneous to the Farmington crash, UHP troopers along the Wasatch Front were investigating five other crashes, including one in which a Salt Lake City Police officer was rear-ended, Breck said, and local police departments were investigating several other crashes within their jurisdictions.
Breck said the UHP was calling out troopers to start their shifts early.
The storm, originally predicted to arrive Tuesday night, took its time getting here, hitting with a vengeance in the late morning hours Wednes-day.
That prompted the National Weather Service to issue a heavy snow warning for the Wasatch Front, including Davis County, through Thursday at 6 p.m.
Forecasters were predicting four to 10 inches of snow in the valleys and benches, and by 2 p.m. Wednesday those predictions were coming true as about four inches had already fallen in the valleys of South Davis County.
Snowfall began slowing by mid-afternoon, but to those hopeful the storm was over, it was predicted to begin in earnest again Wednesday night, as another front moved in and continued through Thursday.
