Woman dies after driving through fence onto I-15 in Beaver

BEAVER — Officials say a woman died Friday after she drove her car through a fence, up a hill and into traffic on I-15 in Beaver.

Two men in a different vehicle were also injured, according to the Utah Department of Public Safety.

About 5:22 p.m., a California woman in her late 20s was driving a white Honda car west on 300 North at a high speed, officials wrote. She kept going when she came to a T-intersection east of the highway, busting through a security fence and climbing up a hill and into the northbound lanes.

She was struck by a northbound Ford van, causing fatal injuries.

Two Utah County men in their early 20s were in the van; they were transported to Beaver Valley Hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Everyone involved was wearing a seat belt, officials said.

The wreck closed one lane of traffic for a time Friday. It is under investigation.
