HAMILTON FORT, Iron County — A Nevada woman died Tuesday after her vehicle rolled in southern Utah.

Tamara Gross, 49, was driving south on I-15 just after 5 p.m. when her Ford Excursion drifted toward the median and she overcorrected, the Utah Highway Patrol reported.

The SUV then began to slide to the right, and Gross attempted to correct back toward the left, UHP reported. The vehicle hit the median and rolled two times and came to a stop on its side.

Gross, a resident of Mesquite, Nevada, was wearing a seat belt and sustained critical head trauma, UHP Sgt. Todd Royce said. She was transported to an area hospital where she died.

Gross was alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
