WEST VALLEY CITY — A 20-year-old woman was killed Sunday morning in an accident on Bangerter Highway.
Yesica Moreno of West Jordan was driving northbound near 2350 South shortly before 6 a.m. when her small pickup truck crossed into southbound traffic and struck the side of a semi tractor-trailer, West Valley City Lt. Bill Merritt said.
Moreno was airlifted to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead, Merritt said. The driver of the tractor-trailer was shaken but not injured, he said.
The accident occurred near a curve in the highway, Merritt said, but it was not clear why the pickup truck crossed into oncoming traffic. "We still don't know for sure what happened," he said.
