Paragonah, UTAH On May 17, 2020, at 7:25 AM a gray 2003 Honda Odyssey Van occupied by a family of 4 was traveling northbound in the area of milepost 82. The right rear tire of the van experienced a failure and the driver of the van lost control. The van traveled into the median and rolled approximately 2 times. A 14 year old female (Zahara Ismael) and a 74 year old female (Hamdiyan Salman) were riding in the second row seat and were not restrained. When the van rolled they were both ejected. The 14 year old female sustained fatal injuries on scene. The 74 year old female sustained severe injuries and was transported to a hospital to meet a medical helicopter for further transport. While at the hospital the 74 year old female died from her injuries. The female driver and front seat male passenger were restrained and received non-life threatening injuries. They were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Traffic was routed off I-15 at exit 82 northbound to bypass the crash scene. The detour lasted for approximately 2.5 hours and had minimal impact to traffic. An inspection of the vehicle was completed on scene and revealed the vehicle had multiple equipment violations and was not safe to drive on the roadway.
