CENTERFIELD, Sanpete County — An 18-year-old Centerfield woman was killed in a crash with a semitrailer Tuesday.

Just before 2 p.m., Kaij B. Ronan, 18, was driving a GMC pickup truck on U.S. 89 when the vehicle crossed over the center line and was struck "just below the driver's door" by a truck hauling two trailers, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

The pickup truck was heavily damaged and Ronan was declared dead at the scene, the UHP stated.

The crash was still being investigated Wednesday. Investigators noted it was raining heavily at the time of the crash.
