Rocklin woman in critical condition following crash on I-80

A 21-year-old Rocklin woman suffered major injuries Sunday night when her vehicle struck the concrete center median barrier on Interstate 80.

Hillary Cantrell was driving a white Chevy Silverado on westbound I-80, east of the Gilardi Road overcrossing northeast of Loomis about 10:55 p.m. She was traveling in the fast lane, when she made an unsafe turning movement, causing her vehicle to hit the median barrier, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. The impact caused the vehicle to overturn several times, ejecting Cantrell into the roadway.

She was airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center by a CHP helicopter. A hospital spokeswoman said today that she is in critical condition.

The CHP reported that Cantrell was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the collision.

Cantrell is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to the news release. The crash remains under investigation.
