SALT LAKE CITY - A woman has died after a crash in Salt Lake City on I-80.

The Utah Highway Patrol has identified the woman killed as 30-year-old Annastasia Seufale of West Valley City.

UHP said a Ford Expedition traveling westbound near 700 E. drifted off the left side of the road at about midnight.

The SUV hit the concrete barrier in the median.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected from the SUV.

Authorities said the driver hit her head on a sign pole and died at the scene.

"Just buckle up. As I stated, this appears to be completely preventable, as a lot of crashes are that we see," Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Zach Randall said.

The driver was the only person in the SUV.

Editor's Note: The story has been updated to show a correction from the Utah Highway Patrol. UHP originally told Fox 13 News the victim was a man. Troopers later confirmed the victim was a woman, 30-year-old Annastasia Seufale.
