A 5-year-old Midvale girl died Sunday morning in a Lehi freeway crash.
Alondra Alavarado was in a rear seat of a Ford Explorer traveling south on Interstate 15. Near mile marker 284, the tread on the right rear tire separated and came off, though the tire did not deflate, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
About 7:05 a.m., the driver lost control of the Explorer and the vehicle struck the right concrete barrier and rolled onto the driver's side. Alondra was thrown from the vehicle and it rolled on top of her, causing fatal injuries, according to the UHP.
