BRIGHAM CITY — A 57-year-old woman is dead after succumbing to her injuries sustained in a single-vehicle accident near Brigham City Saturday evening.

The woman was traveling north in the far left lane on Interstate 15 in a Ford Explorer with two passengers, a 24-year-old woman and 25-year-old man. At approximately 6 p.m. at mile marker 363 the driver reportedly suffered from a medical condition and passed out, said Jeffe Valenzuela, spokesman for Utah Highway Patrol.

The vehicle then veered to the right and went down into a borrow pit below the freeway where it overturned. The driver was ejected and landed on a fence that borders the side of the interstate, Valenzuela said.

The driver was flown to a hospital in Ogden. She died just before going into surgery.

The two passengers suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene.

The passengers were wearing seat belts — the driver was not, Valenzuela said.

The victim has not been identified because officials are notifying next of kin.
