An Ammon woman has died of injuries sustained in a crash on Ammon Road on Wednesday afternoon.

The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office said 60-year-old Linda A. Vandekamp drove her 1998 Isuzu Rodeo into the back of a 1998 Dodge pickup driven by Randall Richmond at the intersection of Garnet and Ammon around 1:20 p.m. 

Investigators said Richmond was waiting for oncoming traffic to make a left turn. Vandekamp's car crashed into the back of the pickup.

She was not wearing a seat belt.

Vanderkamp had to be extricated from the car and was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, where she died of her injuries.
