MORGAN, Utah, Aug. 18, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman was fatally injured Sunday night when her vehicle crashed head-on with a semi on Interstate 84.

Calls started coming in at 11:27 p.m., reporting that a Ford Crown Victoria sedan was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of I-84 near Morgan City, a news release from the Utah Department of Public Safety says.

As several units responded, more calls came in, and at 11:23 p.m., a caller reported there had been a collision.

The wrong-way Ford had crashed head on into a semitrailer hauling onions, the news release says.
