A Salt Lake woman died when she was ejected from the van her husband was driving as it rolled on I-215 at 3000 South about 4:20 p.m. Saturday.

The victim was identified as:Phyllis Warner, 37.

Utah Highway Patrol trooper Cori Start said the accident occurred when the van's driver, Michael Warner, 36, reached to pick up an object that had fallen from the dashboard onto the floor.

When he straightened up he found that the van had drifted off the left edge of the freeway, Start said, and he overcorrected. The van then went into the median, rolled and ended up in the opposite traffic lane on its side.

The victim, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, Start said. She was taken to LDS Hospital by helicopter but died about two hours later.

Start said Michael Warner suffered a head cut and minor injuries. Their 3-year-old child sitting in the back seat also suffered minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved, Start said.

In a separate accident on I-215 about 2900 South, one of two horses running on the freeway was struck and killed by a semitrailer truck Saturday afternoon in a southbound lane.

The two horses were running parallel to the freeway in the median shortly after 1 p.m., causing traffic to back up. The driver of the truck that collided with the horse was not injured.

The second horse was picked up by animal-control officers. UHP dispatchers had no information on who owns the animals or where they escaped from.
