SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Video from Utah during a major snowstorm shows more than a dozen cars sliding, crashing and skidding sideways down a street in just a few hours.

Rhee Braby shot the video from his Bountiful home, about 10 miles north of Salt Lake City.

He says neighbors were even perched at the top of the road Saturday, warning drivers not to attempt the hill, but many continued on and lost control. One car even crashed into a snowplow.

Between crashes, the 34-year-old says he helped push cars back onto the road only to see another come sliding down behind it.

The Utah Highway Patrol says 376 crashes of some sort were reported from Saturday through Sunday afternoon in five northern Utah counties, leading to at least 34 injuries but no fatalities.
