A head-on collision Thursday morning on Brown’s Canyon Road killed a woman from Oakley and left another driver with critical injuries.

Authorities later identified the woman as Marla Lou Harris. She was 63.

According to a press release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred at 4650 West Brown’s Canyon Road at approximately 8:45 a.m. Authorities believe Harris, driving westbound in a 2012 Toyota Camry, veered into the oncoming lane, hitting a 2008 Toyota Highlander head-on.

Harris died on impact. The driver of the Highlander, a 31-year-old man from Peoa, was transported to a Salt Lake-area hospital with critical injuries.

There were no witnesses to the crash, and authorities on Thursday continued to investigate the incident.
