RIVERDALE -- The Utah Highway Patrol says the 28-year-old woman who was killed in a semitrailer accident Tuesday has been identified as Martha R. Pichardo, of Petterson, Calif.

The tractor-trailer she was riding in was carrying apples and rolled over on a bridge connecting Interstate 84 and Interstate 15.

Trooper Cameron Roden Pichardo, who was pregnant, was ejected from the sleeper area of the truck and died at the scene. The man who was driving the semi wasn't injured.

A Utah Highway Patrol report says the semi was traveling too fast for the curve in the road.
