The Utah Highway Patrol had reason to celebrate Wednesday — a third New Year's Eve came and went without a fatality on Utah's highways.
There was only one serious crash — an allegedly drunk driver was involved in a rollover, the UHP added. About 1 a.m., a car going too fast for the turn from northbound Interstate 215 to eastbound Interstate 80 went into the oncoming lanes before correcting, hitting a rock in the right shoulder and rolling onto its top.
The 23-year-old driver was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence. A subsequent breath test showed he was double the legal limit, according to UHP. The car was brand new, too: 4 hours old with 78 miles on it, UHP added in a news release.
