GREEN RIVER, Utah, July 19, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a 44-year-old woman killed in a crash on Interstate 70 near Green River in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The deceased is Elizabeth M. Ross, of El Cajon, California, said a statement from Utah Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred in the area of mile marker 139 at 1:30 a.m., said the statement.

“A Hyundai Sonata was eastbound when the driver failed to negotiate a curve and drove straight off road where the road made a right hand turn,” the statement said.

“The vehicle left the roadway and rolled. The fatally injured person, a passenger, was ejected from the vehicle and it does not appear that they were wearing a seat belt.”

Two other occupants were transported for serious injuries. One occupant went by air ambulance to Grand Junction, Colorado and the other by ground ambulance to Price.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
