A Nevada woman has died in a car accident on the way to her mother's funeral.

Danielle Marquez-Valle, 48, was en route to the Salt Lake City, Utah area Saturday when the pickup truck she was riding in lost control on an icy road.

It rolled several times before coming to rest right side up, according to ABC4 Utah.

Marquez and another female passenger weren't wearing their seatbelts. Marquez, who was ejected from the truck, died from her injuries.

Both the female passenger and the male driver were taken to hospital.

Marquez-Valle was on her way to her mother Shirley Madrid-Coates' funeral in Taylorsville, Utah, which was scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, according to Madrid-Coates' obituary.



She died March 11 at age 69 after a long illness, and her daughter started a GoFundMe page to raise money for cremation and funeral costs.

"Gone to soon, her family remembers her for her love of Jesus and devotion to the path of Christ," Marquez-Valle wrote.

"Her sense of humor and loving nature warmed the hearts of loved ones and strangers alike. "

On her Facebook page, Marquez-Valle shared a photo of the two of them together, as well as a long, heartfelt note honouring her mom.

To all of my family and friends,The time has arrived for me to extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the many,...

A spokesman for the Utah Highway Patrol told The Washington Post that troopers first thought that an urn containing Madrid-Coates' ashes had been inside the truck, but that turned out not to be the case.

In the Facebook note, her daughter lamented the emptiness she felt after her mother's death.

"I will have to live each new day, knowing I can't look forward to the next time I will talk to her or see her beautiful face."
