The condition of a Vancouver woman injured Monday when her car collided with a parked tractor-trailer on Interstate 5 near Oregon’s Siskiyou Summit has improved from serious to fair, officials said.
Carol Dunsmore, 75, apparently fell asleep while driving Monday afternoon, causing the crash, according to a press release from the Oregon State Police.
Dunsmore was extricated by firefighters from Ashland Fire Department and Jackson County Fire District 5. She was transported by Mercy Flights air ambulance to Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Ore. She was listed in fair condition Friday morning, hospital spokesman Grant Walker said.
