Colo. woman dies in crash, 3 young kids survive

TREMONTON, Utah – A Colorado woman is dead but her three young children have survived after their pickup rolled on Interstate 84 west of Tremonton.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers say the 23-year-old woman from Meeker, Colo., was driving west on I-84 about 3 p.m. Wednesday when the vehicle veered into the center median and swerved back onto the highway before crashing and rolling over.

They say she wasn’t wearing a seat belt but remained inside the vehicle with her three children.

The 4-year-old boy, 2-year-old girl and a 9-month-old boy were all secured in the vehicle and received only minor injuries.

Officials are withholding the woman’s name until other family members are notified.
