An icy patch of highway led to a deadly chain reaction that killed one woman and left three semitrailer rigs and 11 cars wrecked Friday morning on Interstate 84.
Brooklynd Preator, 21, was driving a pickup west about 10 miles northwest of the Interstate 80 junction about 8:18 a.m. when she drove onto an icy spot caused by recent mountain snows and subfreezing overnight temperatures, said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce. The truck crashed in the center median.
When Preator got out of the pickup, a semitrailer truck reached the same icy spot and crashed into her and the pickup, Royce said.
