A 41-year-old Roy woman survived an early morning rollover on I-84 Thursday, May 2, suffering only an injured left hand. Her pet Chihuahua, however, died in the crash.
Trooper Josh Carr with the Utah Highway Patrol said the single car accident occurred about 5:45 a.m. The driver was coming from Idaho in a Kia and swerved to miss debris in the road, she said.
The car went of the left side of the interstate and into the median. The driver overcorrected and went back onto the highway, where the car rolled four or five times.
The driver was taken to Bear River Valley Hospital for treatment. Carr said her injuries were minimized because she was wearing a seatbelt. A second dog in the car, a Labrador, was taken to a local veterinarian to be treated for injuries it received in the rollover. The Kia was totaled.
The crash left debris for about 150 feet and the Utah Department of Transportation sent a sweeper to clear the travel lanes.
