MAGNA, Utah – One person died after a crash in Magna on Wednesday.

Unified Police say the crash happened at 3100 South and 7200 West in Magna. The driver of a Nissan ran a red light and collided with another car heading in the opposite direction.

Maria Corona, 60, of Magna, was a passenger in the Nissan. She was rushed to Intermountain Medical Center, where she later died of her injuries.

The 38-year-old driver of the Nissan was transported to a hospital in critical condition, but has since been released from the hospital.

A 6-year-old boy who was riding in the back seat of the Nissan sustained minor injuries.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said no citations have been issued, but charges could be filed in the future.

“It will take our car units several weeks as they put this accident together, do the reconstruction work and then, ultimately, the case will be screened with the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office. They’ll determine what, if any, charges will be filed once they’re completed with their investigation,” Hoyal said.

The 16-year-old driver of the other car involved was not injured.
