First Published May 20 2013 08:09 am • Last Updated May 20 2013 04:41 pm

Two women and three men, all members of the same family, were in serious condition Monday, the day after their Ford Explorer rolled repeatedly on Interstate 80 in Tooele County.

Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Joe Dougherty said only a 38-year-old female passenger was believed to have been wearing a seat belt when the SUV crashed about 6:30 p.m. Sunday on eastbound I-80 just north of Grantsville.

Troopers believe the vehicle was traveling about 90 mph when it drifted off the left side of the road, its 19-year-old female driver having apparently fallen asleep. The Explorer rolled several times over a 750-foot stretch of freeway. The three men, all aged 20 to 25, were ejected.

Initially reported to be in critical condition, the men had been upgraded to serious condition as of Monday at Salt Lake City area hospitals, where they had been flown by medical helicopters. The women, transported by ground ambulance, also were in serious condition, Dougherty said.
