Officials released the identity of a Mapleton woman who died in a crash involving multiple vehicles in Spanish Fork on Monday night.

The crash reportedly happened after a 60-year-old man suffered a medical condition while driving a Nissan Pathfinder east on U.S. Highway 6 about 7:45 p.m., the Spanish Fork Police Department reported.
