UPD said that 24-year-old Karen Sant of Sandy died at the scene of the accident at 5600 West and 6200 South. Just before 11 p.m., a southbound Chevrolet Cruze turned left at the 6200 South intersection, turning in front of a northbound Pontiac Grand Am that was ahead of the motorcycle.

After the two cars collided, the motorcycle smashed into the Pontiac, and possibly the Cruze.

A 53-year-old woman in one of the vehicles was taken to Pioneer Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injures.

The accident remained under investigation on Monday.
