A California woman died Sunday morning in a rollover in Millard County.

Fale Tuitea, 33, from San Pedro, Calif., died. She had been wearing her seatbelt, according to UHP.

About 8:30 a.m., her husband was driving a Toyota Tundra north on Interstate 15 when it drifted into the median near Cove Fort. The driver tried to merge back onto the highway but overcorrected, causing the Tundra to overturn several times before coming to rest upright, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

The driver and their 6-year-old son were taken to a local hospital with injuries, according to UHP.
