DRIVER KILLED AFTER CAR ROLLS THROUGH MEDIAN

A Spanish Fork woman was killed Tuesday afternoon after being ejected from her car that rolled through the median into oncoming traffic on I-15 between the two Springville exits.

Killed:Jody Bailey, 33, Spanish Fork

Utah Highway Patrol trooper Dennis Bang said Bailey was traveling south on I-15 in the left lane at about 4:30 p.m. when another car made an illegal lane change and forced her into the median. Witnesses said Bailey came back onto the road, overcorrected and then rolled through the median into the northbound lanes.

Bailey's car was struck head-on in the northbound lanes by a car driven by Arthur Frink, 66, Billings, Mont. She was ejected from her car and was pronounced dead at the scene. Frink and his wife were not injured.

Troopers say the car that forced Bailey off the road collided with another car, causing about $2,000 in damage, then fled. Troopers are looking for a black Honda Accord with a temporary license sticker with the numbers A6787.
