MILLARD COUNTY — A woman was killed in a rollover crash on Interstate 15 Friday evening in Millard County.

Utah Highway Patrol identified the victim as 51-year-old Monica Byrd of Sacramento, Calif.

UHP says she was driving southbound near mile post 154 when her car drifted to the left side of the road and she overcorrected to the right and went off the freeway on the right shoulder.

Troopers say the vehicle rolled as it left the right shoulder and ejected Byrd, who was determined not to be wearing her seatbelt.

UHP says Byrd suffered injuries to her head and chest and died at the scene of the crash.
