Carlybeth Ramirez, 21, from Orem, Utah was killed following a fatal auto accident near Pocatello, Idaho. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the crash occurred on Monday, January 18, 2010 at around 3:40 p.m. Ramirez and her passenger, twenty-one-year old Tihare Salazar from Provo, Utah were traveling north on Interstate 15 when Ramirez veered into the median. The vehicle rolled when Ramirez attempted to swerve back into the traveling lane landing in the southbound lane. Ramirez was pronounced dead at the scene.
Tihare Salazar was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She is reported in critical condition. Both occupants were believed to wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
This is a horribly tragic accident that claimed the life of two young people. My thoughts are with the family of Ms. Ramirez as they attempt to cope with this loss. As a passenger in the vehicle, Ms. Salazar has a claim against the insurance to recover the cost of the medical bills associated with this accident. I wish her the very best as she recovers.
