    A 24-year-old woman from Pawcatuck is in critical condition following a rollover crash on Route 95 in Rhode Island, police said.

    According to Rhode Island State Police, Amy Sherman, of the Pawcatuck village of Stonington, was seriously injured after losing control of her car on Route 95 southbound in Hopkinton, R.I., near the Connecticut border.

    Police said Sherman was driving at a high rate of speed when she began passing other cars and lost control. The crash happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

    Sherman's 2000 Lincoln Navigator struck the median and rolled over onto the passenger side. Police said Sherman was ejected and was pinned underneath the car as it rolled.

    LifeStar was called to the crash site and flew Sherman to Rhode Island Hospital, where she’s listed in critical condition.

    Part of the highway was shut down for two hours while crews responded to the scene.

    No other cars were involved in the crash.

    An accident reconstruction team is investigating.
