A man remained in critical condition Friday, two days after a crash on Interstate 15 in Juab County left a female passenger dead.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Lawrence Hopper said no change in the condition of the male driver had been reported since he was flown to Utah Valley Medical Center in Nephi following Wednesday morning's rollover accident on southbound I-15, near the town of Mona.

That crash, believed to have been caused by tread separation on the right rear tire, fatally injured Maria Sandoval, 60.

UHP said all occupants of the Ford Explorer were wearing seatbelts when the vehicle careened into the median and rolled several times.

In addition to the driver, two passengers survived the crash. An 11-year-old girl was flown to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City for a precautionary examination, and a 16-year-old female was treated and released to her family.
