RIVERSIDE -- An Ogden woman died in a single-vehicle accident Wednesday morning in Box Elder County. The accident was suspected to be caused by a blown tire.

The woman, identified as 58-year-old Maria Morfin Arreola, was involved in a rollover on northbound Interstate 15 near Riverside at about 8:30 a.m., according to a release from the Utah Highway Patrol.

The green Ford Explorer was near Mile Marker 384 when the rear passenger tire failed, causing the driver to swerve from the inside lane into the median. The vehicle rolled multiple times, crushing the roof.

The driver was wearing a seat belt, but suffered severe head trauma. Medics arrived and transported her to Bear River Valley Hospital in Tremonton, where she was pronounced dead.

No other vehicles were involved, and no other injuries were reported.

The accident is under investigation.
