The rollover crash on I81 South at the rock-cut between exits 8 and seven was reported shortly after 3 p.m. 

A 53-year old Farmington woman was airlifted to an area hospital. Her condition is unknown.

Authorities say the woman’s BMW left the highway for an unknown reason and rolled at least twice before coming to rest at the base of a rock escarpment.
Some reports had indicated other motorists saw the BMW drifting from its lane a few times prior to crashing.
