Crash victim in critical condition
A rural Zumbrota woman was seriously injured Wednesday after her vehicle crashed down into a County Road 1 ravine in Featherstone Township.
Elyse Sommers, 59, was airlifted to St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, where she was listed in critical condition.
A cell phone caller reported the one-vehicle crash at 1:18 p.m. Skid marks indicate Sommers' southbound vehicle crossed the center line, entered a ditch, then traveled about 60 feet to the bottom of the ravine, where a small creek flows.
The cause of the crash was unknown Wednesday. It was also unknown whether Sommers was wearing a seat belt.
