A Pitman woman died Sunday afternoon in a UTV crash in Northumberland County.

According to PA State Police, 21-year-old Karli M. Snyder was one of 4 passengers in a Polaris Ranger Utility Terrain Vehicle traveling along Howerters Rd. in Upper Mahanoy Township at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

As the UTV attempted to make a right-hand turn on to Cemetery Rd., it hit an embankment on the east shoulder of Cemetery Rd. That caused the UTV to roll onto its passenger side.

Snyder was injured in the rollover and succumbed at the scene of the crash.
