A California woman died Friday evening in a rollover accident in Millard County.
Monica Irma Byrd, 51, who was traveling alone, was driving south on Interstate 15 about 7:30 p.m. when she started drifting off the road and over-corrected, said Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Steve Winward.
The car rolled off the highway at mile post 154, Winward said. The Sacramento woman was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the car, he said. She died from injuries to her head and chest.
