HEBER CITY — A woman was killed and a man was in critical condition after their vehicle turned in front of a semitruck near Strawberry Reservoir on Monday afternoon, state troopers said.
Troopers identified the woman later as Hao M. Kuo, 82, from Cottonwood Heights.
Kuo was turning onto U.S. 40 from the Strawberry Reservoir marina road in a Honda CR-V when an eastbound tanker semitruck T-boned her vehicle, according to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cameron Roden.
Kuo was declared dead at the scene, and an 82-year-old male passenger in the car was airlifted in critical condition, Roden said. The driver of the semi was unharmed.
U.S. 40 reopened around 9:20 p.m. after being closed for multiple hours.
