SALISBURY — A woman seriously injured when her SUV flipped last week died from her injuries Tuesday night.
Julie Keels, a native of Salisbury, was left in critical condition after the wreck on Old Mocksville Road Friday morning.
Keels’ father, Steven Keels, posted news of Keels’ death on Facebook: “Thanks for all the support from everyone who knew Julie. She passed away this evening with her family by her side.”
A Facebook group has been created for Keels, called Thoughts and Prayers for Julie.
Keels was a sociology major at Catawba College.
Keels was thrown from her Ford Explorer about 8 a.m. when it flipped over several times and hit a utility pole. She was flown to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, where she was in the intensive care unit before her death.
