A 19-year-old woman was killed in a single-vehicle rollover late Sunday night — the third fatality this weekend on Utah’s roadways.

Tasia R. Hymas, of Salt Lake City, was a backseat passenger in a car that was driving on 2700 N. Droubay Road in Erda at about 10:30 p.m. The car came up an incline and crossed railroad tracks, and then began heading down about a 2 percent grade, said Lt. Jeff Morgan of the Tooele County Sheriff’s Office. The car hit a patch of black ice and rolled about four times, ejecting the woman, who apparently was not wearing a seat belt.

The posted speed limit is 45 mph, but weather conditions created hazardous conditions at that speed, Morgan said.

Two others suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital in fair condition. The third walked away from the crash and refused any medical treatment, Morgan said.

Also this weekend:

• A 51-year-old man died in Tooele County, near Grantsville, when the truck he was in lost control Sunday morning and rolled, ejecting him.

• A 9-year-old Colorado boy died near Vernal when his mother lost control of their Saturn on snowy roads Sunday evening and ran into an oncoming Dodge Dakota.
