Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said 24-year-old Wendy Pollock of Entertprise died in a head-on crash on SR-18 just past Veyo near mile marker 23.

The two collided. Investigators say Pollock was killed on impact. The driver of the Chevy was flown to the hospital in extremely critical condition.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
