SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A woman has died and a man remains in critical condition after a rollover in Little Cottonwood Canyon Sunday night.
According to Sgt. Melody Cutler, the crash happened at about 5:30 pm near 7877 East on SR 210.
Cutler said they believe the man, who was driving, along with a female passenger, were headed west when he took a curve too sharp, went into oncoming traffic, overcorrected and hit the mountainside before rolling.
The woman died at the scene and the driver was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Cutler said both the man and woman appear to be in their early 20s and they may have been coming from Oktoberfest.
Alcohol is being considered a factor but the crash is still under investigation. The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
Traffic was impacted for several hours as the crash scene is investigated.
