Sanpete County Fatal Crash

Tuesday January 17, 2023

On Monday, January 16, 2022, at about 9:57 am, a white Chevy Cavalier was traveling South on SR-132 just North of Fountain Green. A Silver Ford F-350 with a large gooseneck flatbed trailer attached was traveling North in the same location. The Cavalier car lost control on the road that was wet and slushy. The car spun backward on the road and into the lane of travel of the Ford. The driver of the Ford could not stop in time and impacted the car’s rear, pushing it off the road. After impact, the Ford went up on the car, with the front bumper ending on the front dash. The 20-year-old female driver and only occupant of the Chevy was killed on impact. SR-132 had lane restrictions for about 1 hour during the investigation.
