Police identify woman killed in head-on crash on SR-18 in southern Utah

SOUTHERN UTAH — Police have identified a woman who was killed in a head-on crash in southern Utah Tuesday.

The deceased is identified as 24-year-old Wendy Pollock of Enterprise.

Utah Highway Patrol first tweeted about the crash on SR-18 at mile marker 23 at 9:10 a.m.

Mile marker 23 is a few miles north of Veyo, a small community north of St. George.

UHP states the crash occurred as a red Chevy S-10 was traveling northbound and a gray Pontiac passenger car was southbound.

Troopers say the driver of the Chevy veered out of his lane and into the southbound lane for an unknown reason. The driver of the Pontiac steered left into the northbound lane to avoid the crash, but her car was struck head on when the driver of the Chevy steered back into his initial lane.

Pollock was driving the Pontiac and was killed on impact.

The driver of the Chevy was flown to a hospital in extremely critical condition.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
