First Published May 15 2014 05:08 pm • Last Updated May 15 2014 09:23 pm

A Salt Lake City woman who died Wednesday — four days after a South Salt Lake crash that left her on life support — was identified by police on Thursday.

Norma "Alishia" Black, 31, of Salt Lake City, was taken off life support about 4 p.m. Wednesday while her mother was by her side, said South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller.

The woman was a passenger at about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday in a Chevy Malibu that was traveling north in the southbound lane of 700 West near 3800 South, Keller has said; the lanes jog east there because of road construction.

The driver of a southbound Dodge Durango noticed the oncoming Malibu and stopped, but the Malibu’s 24-year-old driver did not try to swerve away from the Durango until the last minute. The Malibu struck the Durango and rolled, partially ejecting the victim.

Police suspect the 24-year-old was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The case is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
