The accident happened at about 1 a.m. in the area of 5211 Shalee St.

Lt. Paul Barker, with the Unified Police Department, told Gephardt Daily that crews transported two women — originally listed in critical but stable condition — to Intermountain Medical Center. Barker said one woman had been in the front passenger seat of the badly damaged car and the other had been in the back seat.

Barker said it appears the vehicle was eastbound on 5200 South and veered to the right, where it hit a fence, then went across the street and crashed into parked cars there.
