A 31-year-old Salt Lake City woman is on life support after a traffic crash in a South Salt Lake construction zone.
The woman was a passenger in a Chevy Malibu on 700 West near 3800 South about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, said South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller. The lanes jog east there because of road construction, Keller said. The Malibu was traveling north in the southbound lane, Keller said.
A Dodge Durango was carrying a family of five south when the driver noticed the oncoming Malibu, said. The Durango's driver stopped, but the Malibu continued north until it swerved at the last minute, Keller said.
