NEPHI, Utah, Feb. 28, 2023 (Gephardt Daily) — Law enforcement officials have released the name of the 35-year-old woman killed in a head-on crash with a semitrailer Monday in Juab County.

Taysia K. Fish, of Leamington, was traveling east on state Route 132 in a black Hyundai Sonata about 9:45 a.m. when she lost control of the vehicle in slushy conditions near Nephi and spun into the westbound lane, according to a news release from the Utah Highway Patrol.

The driver of a blue Peterbilt semi pulling two empty tank trailers attempted to avoid the Hyundai, according to UHP.

“The Sonata struck the right front of the semi as it tried to move left to avoid the collision. The Sonata went off the north side of the road and spun to a stop. The semi traveled off the south shoulder and stopped,” the release states.

Fish was pronounced dead at the scene. The semi driver was “shaken up but otherwise uninjured,” according to UHP.

Westbound SR-132 was temporarily closed while officials investigated the crash.

Fish was the lone occupant in the Sonata, UHP stated.
