Crash victim’s condition is upgraded at hospital


HOPE VALLEY — The condition of the 24-year-old woman who suffered life-threatening injuries when she was ejected from her vehicle in a crash on Interstate 95 Tuesday morning has been upgraded. Amy Sherman, of Pawcatuck, whose SUV pinned her under the vehicle and against the highway barrier, was listed in fair condition at Rhode Island Hospital Thursday.

Rhode Island State Police Lt. Stephen Flood said Sherman was the operator of a 2000 Lincoln Navigator traveling on 95 south between Exits 2 and 3 on Tuesday morning at about 1 a.m. There were no other vehicles involved in the accident.

A doctor returning home from his shift at Rhode Island Hospital was traveling behind Sherman, said Flood, providing her with immediate medical aid as emergency personnel was called to the scene.

Hope Valley-Wyoming firefighters used extrication devices to rescue Sherman and Hope Valley Ambulance and Lifestar personnel moved her to an awaiting helicopter to transfer her to the Providence hospital.
