WASHINGTON CITY — One woman is dead and a man is injured following a single-vehicle rollover Sunday afternoon on Landfill Road in Washington City.
At 4:41 p.m., emergency responders were dispatched to Landfill Road where a blue Subaru passenger car, occupied by a man and woman both in their 40s, had been traveling south when the driver of the Subaru failed to negotiate a turn and the vehicle rolled before landing on its top, Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said.
The woman was pronounced dead on arrival at the scene as a result of the rollover while the man was attended to by medical responders for injuries, Kantor said. At the time of this publication, Kantor said he did not know the extent of man’s injuries.
Contributing factors in the rollover are under investigation.
“The only factor we can determine at this point is failure to negotiate a turn,” Kantor said. “We can’t speculate on whether speed is a factor.”
Whether or not seat belts were worn as well as which person was driving the vehicle at the time of the rollover is unknown as this report is published.
The Washington City Police Department, Washington City Fire Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Utah Highway Patrol and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the scene.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
