SALT LAKE CITY — One person is dead and another was injured following a head-on car crash on I-15 early Sunday.

The Department of Public Safety said in a news release that at approximately 4:15 a.m., a red Mazda sedan entered the wrong way on the 600 South off-ramp. Following this, it collided head-on with a black Chevrolet Suburban.

The collision killed the female driver of the Mazda and left the Chevrolet driver with minor injuries, according to DPS.
