MAGNA — A woman died in a crash late Friday night when she was T-boned by a pickup truck at a Magna intersection, officials said.

The 33-year-old woman was traveling north on 7200 West when she entered the intersection at state Route 201 about 10:35 p.m.; officials believe at this time she ran a red light, according to Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Andrew Battenfield.

A pickup truck with two males inside, ages 19 and 20, then T-boned the woman's Hyundai in the intersection.

The driver and passenger in the pickup were transported to the hospital in a personal vehicle, but the woman was killed in the crash. She was not wearing a seat belt, Battenfield said.

The wreck closed SR-201 for three hours. It is still under investigation Battenfield said.

He stressed the importance of buckling up. "A seat belt probably would have made a difference," he said.

The woman's name was not released Saturday.
