She was transported to Intermountain Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Merritt said police aren’t sure why she went into the southbound lanes of traffic but said the road curves in the spot where the crash occurred, and it appeared her vehicle may have failed to navigate the curve.

The driver of the truck was not injured; police said he did nothing wrong.
