OGDEN, Utah — A 3-year-old girl died early Wednesday following a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 15 near Ogden.
The Utah Highway Patrol said at least nine vehicles were involved in the accident that occurred near 21st Street just before 5 a.m. Because of the overnight storm that passed through northern Utah, roads and highways were experiencing slick conditions.
The child, identified as Jax Phillips, was flown to a local hospital in critical condition where she later died of her injuries.
Phillips was in a PT Cruiser that had over-corrected to avoid hitting another car, then hitting a concrete barrier before coming to a rest on its side. Shortly after, another vehicle crashed into the right passenger side of the PT Cruiser.
A GoFundMe page has been created to help the family with funeral expenses for Jax.
UHP officials said the highway was completely shutdown following the accident, but was reopened to regular traffic as of 7:00 a.m.
