WEST HAVEN — A deadly crash closed a highway for several hours after a car crossed the center line and hit another car head-on Tuesday afternoon.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cameron Roden told KSL that at approximately 4:33 p.m., a man driving a Ford pickup truck was traveling northbound on state Route 126 when it crossed into southbound traffic near 1750 South.
Roden said a woman driving a Toyota Sequoia tried to avoid the truck, but the two cars hit head-on, causing both vehicles to roll over.
The man was transported to a hospital in serious condition. The woman was transported in extremely critical condition but died due to her injuries.
Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
