MORGAN, Utah (AP) — The Utah Highway Patrol says one woman is dead and another person is in critical condition Friday after a 14-car pileup on a slick highway in northern Utah.

Sgt. Todd Royce says three semi-trucks and 11 passenger vehicles were involved in the Interstate 84 crash.

Royce says the pileup started Friday morning after a vehicle slid off the road at mile post 109. The area is east of the city of Morgan and about a mile north of the town of Taggart.

Royce says troopers are treating the chain-reaction accidents are several separate crashes.

The Standard-Examiner reports (http://bit.ly/Qo3e0f) the highway is closed as crews work to clean up the accident.

Officials say travelers headed west on I-84 should instead take Interstate 80 through Parleys Canyon.
