RIVERSIDE, Box Elder County — A 58-year-old Ogden woman was killed in a rollover accident on I-15 Wednesday.

Just before 8:30 a.m., a 1999 Ford Explorer was headed north on I-15 when a rear passenger tire "failed," according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The SUV went into the median and rolled three times. The vehicle's roof was crushed and it came to rest on its wheels, according to the UHP.

Maria Morfin Arreola, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at Bear River Valley Hospital in Tremonton.
