**UPDATE December 12, 6 p.m.**

Call after call to Richmond County dispatch, witnesses all reported the same thing.

"They're on the wrong side of the road flying in a  sports utility vehicle, ” says a woman who frantically called 911.

One of those still hospitalized from Monday's accident is 31 - year old Monique Sullivan; she's the driver of the sports utility vehicle that police say caused the crash. Investigators say she drove on the wrong side of Riverwatch Parkway for nearly 4 miles.

Lieutenant Randy Prickett with Richmond County Sheriff's office says, "That is a great distance, and we had curves involved in this before the accident-and all that we also have witnesses that have stated the cars were trying to get out of her way. So she should've noticed something and we're still not sure. We still have a ways to go on this one."

 Police say Monique Sullivan has so far refused to talk to investigators.

Randy Prickett with the Richmond County Sheriff's office says, "She's on medication, which does inhibit her from knowing what's going on around her I believe but not to the strength to where she can't speak to us."
