SANDY — Police have identified a Sandy woman killed in a head-on crash Sunday.

Ashley Robinson, 28, was traveling on 9400 South near 1700 East when an oncoming SUV crossed over the center line for an unknown reason and collided with her car head-on, according to Sandy police. Robinson's vehicle was in the far right lane when it was hit, meaning the SUV nearly drifted over two lanes before hitting her, police stated.

The incident happened about 7:45 p.m. Sunday. Robinson was initially taken to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries. The driver of the vehicle that went into oncoming traffic, a woman in her mid-60s, was also taken to a hospital to be treated for a broken leg.

What caused the vehicle to go into oncoming traffic remains under investigation. Police say some witnesses told them that the SUV was driving "erratically" prior to the crash.
