A woman in her 60s died on Sunday after crashing her vehicle into an Evanston fireworks warehouse.
Evanston Police Chief Mark Vranish confirmed to Cowboy State Daily on Monday that a woman died Sunday after crashing her vehicle, but could not release much information other than that.
Vranish told the Uinta County Herald that the driver was “traveling at a high rate of speed before impact.”
The police were called around 7:15 a.m. Sunday about the crash, but could not say how long the woman had been at the Phantom Fireworks warehouse. She was supposed to be at work at 7 a.m.
The woman was transported Evanston Regional Hospital in critical condition, where she later died.
Her name has not yet been revealed. Police are looking into possible causes, including the possibility of a medical event. Vranish does not believe the cause to be alcohol or drug-related, but said “anything is possible.”
A commenter named Anthony on the Evanston newspaper’s website said he worked with the woman “in the kitchen at the Wyoming State Hospital.”
“She will be greatly missed. Prayers go out to your family in this difficult time. RIP Fidelina. God has other plans for you,” he wrote.
