CENTERVILLE, Utah – An 18-year-old woman was killed in a car crash along Interstate 15 in Centerville Monday.

Officials say the fatal crash happened near Parrish Lane in Centerville. The woman was traveling north when traffic began to slow due to a lane closure.

The woman lost control of her car and drifted into the other lanes of traffic. She was hit by another car and ran into the back of a semitrailer. Those in the other vehicles suffered minor injuries.

“The driver of the semi truck was fine. The driver of the Hyundai, the little white passenger car, was transported to Lakeview Hospital with minor injuries. I didn’t get the indication it was serious,” said Sgt. Matt Spillman, Utah Highway Patrol.

Police said speed may have been a factor in the crash. The woman was wearing her seat belt, but was pronounced dead at the scene.
