BALLARD, Utah (AP) -- A woman who was driving a dump truck has been killed after another dump truck tipped and landed on top of her cab.

Police said the accident happened yesterday morning, almost three miles north of U-S 40 in Ballard.

The two dump trucks, working on a road project, were apparently unloading dirt in a field.

According to police, a large dump truck was unloading dirt when the victim pulled up beside the truck. That's when the driver tried to pull forward but the wheel hit a low spot and tipped over.

The victim has not been identified.
