WEST JORDAN — A 99-year-old woman from West Jordan was killed Saturday morning while exiting her driveway onto Redwood Road.
The woman was in a Cadillac passenger car when a woman driving north in a pickup truck was unable to stop and hit the Cadillac, police said.
The 99-year-old woman was pronounced dead on the scene. Neither the driver nor the passenger in the pickup truck was injured.
"Please exercise extra caution when exiting a driveway onto any main road. Vehicles may look to be further away than they actually are," said officer Samuel Winkler with the West Jordan Police Department.
Redwood Road was closed for several hours while investigators are on the scene. The road opened around 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, with the northbound traffic opening first and then southbound.
