OGDEN, Utah, Oct. 17, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a woman who died Thursday morning after her pickup truck left Interstate 15 and hit a thick metal post supporting a UDOT overhead sign.

The 30-year-old woman, now identified as Murray resident Melissa Ann Adams, was driving a 2014 Toyota Tacoma southbound, near milepost 341, just before 6 a.m.
