SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Sept. 10, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A 61-year-old woman is dead after a rollover crash in South Jordan Sunday morning.
The crash happened on 10400 South and Temple Drive (1300 West) just before 10:30 a.m., Lt. Matt Pennington, spokesman for South Jordan Police Department, told Gephardt Daily.
Pennington said it appears that the woman, who was driving a silver passenger car, ran a red light and T-boned a red pickup truck, which caused both vehicles to roll.
The woman killed was partially ejected and had severe head injuries. She was declared deceased at the scene. Pennnigton said she was not wearing a seatbelt.
The pickup truck had two occupants, and neither were injured, Pennington said. Both were wearing seatbelts.
He added that there was a washing machine in the back of the pickup truck, which fell from the truck when it rolled. Two other vehicles then hit the washing machine; there were no injuries to the occupants of those two vehicles.
The deceased woman also had two dogs in her car; one was taken to a shelter and the other ran off.
Police are attempting to contact the woman’s next-of-kin.
The road is expected to be shut down until 2:30 p.m. to allow investigators to process the scene.
