KSL TV - Slick roads and black ice led to at least 20 traffic accidents in the Salt Lake Valley and shut down part of I-15 Thursday morning. I-15 southbound was closed for a time from 600 North to 400 South because of at least 10 crashes in that area. Peggy Wright said she was southbound in the middle lane when a car in the left lane spun and headed straight for her. She swerved into the far right lane to avoid it. "That’s when my car slid," she said. "I, in turn, hit the cement wall, and the cement wall launched me all the way across." She said she dialed 911 and the dispatcher told her to stay in her car.

NBC News - General Motors will not have to face dozens of lawsuits accusing it of concealing an ignition-switch defect that has been blamed for more than 200 deaths and serious injuries, a U.S. bankruptcy judge ruled on Wednesday. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Gerber said that some drivers may assert claims against the automaker over its post-bankruptcy actions, but he declined to modify the bankruptcy plan of the old GM, which shielded it from suits related to prior actions. GM has offered a compensation plan to those affected by the faulty ignition switches, including incidents that occurred before its bankruptcy, but some had opted to instead file lawsuits.
