Rollover in Box Elder kills Arizona driver

One woman is dead after her car rolled over near Willard, Box Elder County, Wednesday afternoon.

Killed was: Juanita L. Moore, 55, Mesa, Ariz.

A man, Dean Horning, 54, also from Mesa, was in the passenger's seat and sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Moore and Horning were headed south on I-15 about 1:25 p.m. when the car they were in drifted to the right side of the freeway, said Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Jeff Nigbur.

Moore apparently overcorrected, sending the car into a slide into the median, where it rolled twice and came to rest on its wheels.

Moore, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. Horning was not thrown from the car.
