A head-on collision Wednesday on U-201 took the life of one woman and seriously injured another.

The identity of the woman killed had not been released Wednesday pending notification of relatives.The accident occurred about 7 a.m. on the eastbound lanes of U-201 at 5600 West after a passenger car and van collided head-on. The Buick sedan was apparently traveling the wrong way on the busy expressway, a Utah Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

Each vehicle had only one occupant, dispatchers said. The driver of the car was found dead upon the arrival of emergency crews. The driver of the van, also a woman, was transported to LDS Hospital via helicopter with serious injuries.
