VERNAL — A 43-year-old woman was killed in a rollover accident outside of Vernal on Monday in which bad weather likely contributed.
Just before 8 p.m., the woman was driving a 2011 Dodge 2500 pickup on U.S. 40. The Utah Highway Patrol says it was "snowing with blowing winds and iced-over roads" at the time.
The woman lost control of her truck, which went off the road to the right and rolled multiple times, the UHP states. Despite having a seat belt on, the woman was ejected from the vehicle. A 47-year-old man in the passenger seat was pinned.
Both were taken to a local hospital where the woman died from her injuries. Her name has not yet been released. Troopers said they do not believe impairment was a factor.
