UTAH COUNTY -- Traffic on southbound Interstate 15 in Utah County was stopped for a time Saturday night due to a fatal crash involving pedestrians.

Troopers say a car hit three people who were walking on the freeway near the Alpine/Highland exit around 9:30 p.m. Troopers confirmed one woman died at the scene and the two others -- a male and a female -- are in serious condition.

A spokesman for the Utah Highway Patrol says dispatch received a call two minutes before the crash from a motorist reporting four people -- all wearing black clothing -- running across the freeway.

The driver of the car who hit the pedestrians called 911 to report the crash.

The southbound lanes of the freeway have been shut down for the investigation. One victim was flown to the hospital for treatment while the other was taken by ambulance.

We have a crew at the scene and will bring you the latest information as it becomes available.
