CEDAR CITY — An Enoch woman was killed Friday after the car she was riding in was T-boned on I-15 after going airborne and landing in the opposite lane of traffic.

The victim, identified by the Utah Department of Public Safety as Kimberly Roundy, 55, was driving on 1-15 near a Cedar City onramp when the driver of a pickup truck merging onto the interstate apparently didn’t see her vehicle, which veered to avoid the collision.

Roundy’s car went into the median and went airborne, with the front bumper catching on the cable barrier, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The vehicle then flipped end over end and landed in the northbound lanes on all four-tires.

Troopers say it was then T-boned by another car, killing Roundy — the front seat passenger — on impact.

The driver of the car Roundy was in was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, while the driver of the car that T-boned the Roundy vehicle and its passenger suffered minor injuries, the UHP reported.

All people involved were wearing seat belts and impairment is not suspected, according to troopers.

Troopers say the driver of the pickup truck remained on scene and was cooperating with investigators.
