CARBON COUNTY -- A Provo woman was killed in a rollover on State Road 6 early Saturday, and troopers say drowsy driving is to blame.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the driver of a Nissan was headed west on SR-6 near Wellington just after 12:30 a.m. He started to fall asleep, drifted into oncoming traffic and then swerved off the road into an embankment.
The passenger in the backseat, 24-year-old Deanne Jones, was killed instantly.
Another passenger was not hurt, and the driver was taken to Castleview Hospital with minor injuries.
All three people were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
