A five-car pileup brought traffic on I-15 in North Salt Lake to a standstill for 90 minutes Saturday afternoon.
Two cars slowed to get around road construction about 3 p.m. in the northbound lanes, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper David Maycock said. Three oncoming cars ran into them.Nine people were taken to Lakeview and LDS hospitals, Maycock said. Seven were treated and released; two were held overnight for observation.
The injuries could have been serious, Maycock said, but most of the victims were wearing seat belts.
