SCIPIO, Millard County — A woman was killed in a rollover accident on I-15 Sunday night.

The incident brought the number of weekend fatalities on Utah's roads to six since Saturday night.

In the latest accident, Kathy Free, 58, of Centerville, was driving north on I-15 near Scipio just after 9 p.m. when her car went into the median for an unknown reason and rolled multiple times, according to the Utah Department of Public Safety.
