WENDOVER, Utah (AP) - Utah officials have identified a 21-year-old West Jordan woman who died in a rollover on Interstate 80 near the Nevada border.
Utah Highway Patrol officials say Stephanie Dawn Barrup was killed after the crash about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Authorities say Barrup's 2001 Lincoln Navigator was traveling west near mile marker nine when it veered off the right shoulder, overcorrected, and rolled several times in the median.
Barrup was wearing a seat belt but was injured after the driver side door opened during the roll.
An ambulance responded, but Barrup died en route to a hospital.
