Katie Snyder Evans was killed Friday night in a two-vehicle collision that happened shortly before midnight on Golden Valley Road near Valley Center Road.

Police said alcohol was found in the auto that hit Evans and believe it played a role in the crash.

On Friday, October 6, Katie Evans, a 37-year-old LDS mother of six, was driving home from visiting her premature twin girls in the NICU when her vehicle was struck by another auto whose driver is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol.

Evans died on the scene.

Evans was about a mile away from home when the fatal wreck occurred, according to a YouCaring fundraising page.

The mother posted on Facebook in June that her two youngest daughters would have health problems when they were born, and urged her friends to act against the Republican-backed healthcare law that would remove mandates for certain "essential benefits". "It was pretty mangled". The name of the DUI driver was not publicly disclosed.

Evans was devoted to her family and passionately concerned about issues that affected her family. "The outpouring of support from the community, from the internet, from our local church, from neighbors ... it has been absolutely overwhelming".

Noted the page, 'Katie couldn't go a day without visiting her brand-new twin girls in the hospital.

Her husband, Jacob Evans, explained that their twin girls were not expected to survive but are now almost 8-weeks-old and thriving.

As of Monday evening, EST, $181,250 had been raised and counting....

Evan's husband, Jacob, will now have to take care of the other four children aged from 2 to 12 in addition to the twin baby girls who are expected to survive despite the premature birth.
