A 31-year-old Salt Lake City woman remained in critical condition and on life support Wednesday, five days after the car she was riding in crashed and rolled in a South Salt Lake construction zone.
South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller said the 24-year-old female driver of the Chevrolet Malibu sedan, who escaped with minor injuries, is suspected of having been drunk at time of the 2:30 a.m. Saturday accident at 700 West 3791 South.
The crash remained under investigation, and no citations had been issued as of Wednesday.
The Malibu was traveling north in the southbound lane. A Dodge Durango, carrying a family of five south, halted when the driver saw the approaching car; the Malibu, despite swerving at the last moment, clipped the pickup truck and then rolled.
The family in the Durango was not injured, Keller said.
