EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah, June 13, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman who is 27 weeks pregnant may have experienced a medical emergency before she crashed into a rock wall a few blocks from her home in Eagle Mountain, officials said.

Deputies in Eagle Mountain responded to a report of a crash near Inverness Road and Mount Airey Drive at approximately 10:15 a.m. Thursday morning, according to a news release from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.

“They arrived and found that a small SUV had missed a curve and driven across the lawn of a home and crashed into a rock wall,” the news release said. “The driver was a 24-year-old woman who is 27 weeks pregnant. A witness said they saw the woman standing outside her car before she got back in, buckled her seat belt, and drove away. Moments later the crash occurred.”

The woman had reportedly called her husband saying she didn’t feel well and was going to return home, the news release said.

“The home where she crashed had a security system that recorded the crash,” the news release said. “The woman may have experienced a medical emergency, as there was no apparent effort to turn or slow down before the impact.”

Airbags in the SUV deployed and the woman sustained serious injuries to her head and pelvis. She was taken by Unified Fire Authority ambulance to Mount Point Medical Center in Lehi. From there the was taken by AirMed medical helicopter to University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City.

The woman has not been identified by officials.
