BOX ELDER COUNTY, Utah — Authorities have identified a woman killed in a three-car accident just north of the Box Elder County line Monday night.

At about 8 p.m., light snow turned to ice, causing Christine M. Waldemar, 44, of Chubbuck, Idaho, taveling in a Ford Mustang, to lose control and hit a Chevy Malibu on Interstate 15 northbound at mile post 351.

Waldemar’s vehicle became disabled in the travel lane with the driver’s side exposed to traffic, according to Utah Highway Patrol.
