A woman was airlifted from a violent crash Thursday afternoon in Fishersville. The 4:30 p.m. accident briefly shut down Jefferson Highway near Woodrow Wilson Avenue.
State police say 18-year-old Cynthia Marie Riley was broadsided by an SUV as she made a left turn in a pickup truck. Riley is in stable condition at the University of Virginia Medical Center.
The SUV's driver and teenage passenger had to be cut from the vehicle, but their injuries are less serious. Riley was charged with failing to yield.
