WILLARD, Box Elder County — Police have identified the woman who died Monday evening after losing control of her vehicle on I-15.
Christine M. Waldemar, 44, of Chubbuck, Idaho, was driving north on the freeway and had just crossed into Box Elder County around 8 p.m. when her 2010 Ford Mustang "lost control on the ice," the Utah Highway Patrol said in a statement.
The Mustang reportedly became disabled after hitting a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. The driver's side of the Mustang sat exposed to northbound traffic after that collision, according to police. That's when the Mustang was T-boned by a fast-moving 2009 Pontiac.
Waldemar was in extremely critical condition when she was flown to Ogden Regional Medical Center. She later died at the hospital.
Two others were injured in the crash and taken from the scene by ambulance in serious condition.
Snowfall along I-15 in Weber and Box Elder counties caused dangerously slick conditions throughout Monday evening, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. Northbound I-15 traffic was shut down temporarily because of the three-car wreck, causing major delays.
