WEST BOUNTIFUL, Utah, March 28, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman was killed Monday night when the minivan she was driving on Interstate 15 made a sudden exit at 500 South and rolled near the offramp, according to Utah Highway Patrol.
Witnesses told police a dark blue Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling south on I-15 in West Bountiful about 9:45 p.m. when the minivan suddenly attempted to exit the freeway at 500 South, then overcorrected back toward the freeway and rolled several times in the weeded area between the offramp and lanes of traffic, UHP Sgt. Cameron Roden said.
The female driver, an adult male passenger and a 13-year-old female passenger were inside the minivan when it rolled, Roden said. The driver later died from her injuries.
The male passenger was ejected from the minivan during the rollover and was transported by ambulance to an area hospital, Roden said. The 13-year-old female passenger also was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries, he said.
The 500 South offramp was closed for about three hours, Roden said.
