JUAB COUNTY -- One woman was killed and her daughter critically injured in a crash on state Route 132 in Juab County Friday night.
Troopers say 49-year-old Mary Sue Dutson of Lynndyl, was driving west in her 1998 Buick LeSabre around 7:15 p.m. with her daughter, 21-year-old Emily Dutson, also of Lynndyl. It was snowing, and Mary Sue lost control of the vehicle, spun several times and ended up in the eastbound lanes.
The driver of an eastbound 2000 Chevy Silverado couldn't stop in time and struck the passenger side of the Buick.
Mary Sue died at the scene. Emily was transported to the hospital in extremely critical condition. Her condition hadn't changed Saturday but troopers say she is now stable.
The driver of the pickup truck, Robert Vandam, and his wife, Marilyn, were both taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The crash shut down the roadway for a short time while crews worked to clean up the wreckage. Witnesses told troopers Dutson was traveling too fast for the snowy road conditions.
