WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — A West Valley City woman killed in an early morning rollover accident has been identified.

West Valley police officers happened upon the accident at 3500 South and 1300 West at about 2:20 a.m. When they approached the scene, they found 23-year-old Hannah Yingling dead in her Toyota corolla, said Lt. Robert Hamilton with West Valley City police.

During preliminary investigation, officers learned Yingling clipped the back end of a Ford Explorer, which caused her to roll. She was wearing a seat belt, Hamilton said.

East and westbound lanes were closed for about five hours while the crash cleaned up and investigated.

The accident is currently under investigation.
