Local News

CEDAR CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – A woman died in a rollover crash Saturday, with six children and an adult taken to the hospital.

A silver Honda Odyssey was traveling South on I-15 near mile marker 54, in Cedar City when a semi-truck or a large RV started to change lanes, a witness said.

The driver of the Honda reacted by trying to steer away from the other vehicle. The driver of the Honda lost control skidding off the roadway into the shoulder.

Utah Highway Patrol says the Honda then rolled several times before coming to a rest on its wheels. An adult female passenger was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries.

Officials say she has since been identified as Nancy Morales, age 27 out of Cedar City.

The ejected female was not wearing a seat belt, UHP confirms. The driver and six young children, who were in the vehicle, were transported to area hospitals.
