OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Police say a distracted driver received a careless driving citation after a rollover crash that injured her and two other people in Ogden.

Weber County sheriff’s Sgt. Lane Findlay tells the Standard-Examiner (https://bit.ly/QI0l9Y ) the 35-year-old Roy woman claimed mechanical problems with her Chevrolet Blazer before the crash about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on 1900 West near 16th Street.

But several witnesses told police she was using her cell phone and appeared distracted when she veered onto the wrong side of the road.

The woman received minor injuries when her Blazer struck an Audi sedan and landed on its roof.

Weber firefighters pulled a 56-year-old driver and her 82-year-old mother from the Audi.

They were taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden with injuries that weren’t believed to be life-threatening.
