A Pleasant Grove woman was injured Christmas morning when the northbound car she was driving rolled on I-15 near 5300 South.

Laurie Ford, 28, was taken by helicopter ambulance to LDS Hospital where she was in serious condition with spinal injuries suffered in the 10:36 a.m. accident. Her two children were not injured in the accident, said Utah Highway Patrol trooper Robin Wilkins.Ford apparently fell asleep at the wheel, drove her car off the freeway, came back on and then overcorrected, causing the car to roll 21/2 times before coming to rest in the inside emergency lane on southbound I-15.
