A woman who was not wearing a seat belt was ejected from the backseat of a Ford Expedition Monday morning on eastbound Interstate 80 near Jeremy Ranch.

The traffic crash occurred at about 4:15 a.m., according to Cameron Roden, a spokesman for the Utah Highway Patrol.

Three women were inside the vehicle when it rolled over, Roden said.

The driver overcorrected after the vehicle went off the left side of the road.

"She was possibly distracted or had dosed off," Roden said. "She lost control and the vehicle rolled three times."

Roden did not know the names, ages or hometowns of the women involved in the crash. The woman who was ejected from the vehicle suffered the most serious injuries.

She was in serious condition when she was flown in a medical helicopter to a hospital in Salt Lake City, Roden said.

Traffic was blocked as emergency crews cleaned up the crash.

Three names suggested for treasurer’s replacement

The Summit County Republican Party has begun the process for finding a replacement for former Summit County Treasurer Glen Thompson, a Republican.

April 30 was Thompson’s last day. The Summit County Republican Party was given 30 days to submit three names to the Summit County Council. Councilpersons may pick one of those people as Thompson’s replacement.

The three applicants include Henry Glasheen, Michael Howard and Richard Motto, according to Glasheen, chairman of the Summit County Republican Party.

The three men live in the Park City area.

The list was unanimously supported by more than half of the Republican precinct chairpersons in Summit County, according to Glasheen.

The treasurer monitors receiving and accounts for all county funds. The office also assists in borrowing and investing money for Summit County.
