Troopers: Woman in Critical Condition After Serious Crash on I-684

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call 914-277-3651.

State police are investigating a one-car accident that sent a little boy, a teenager and a 39-year-old woman to the hospital Sunday morning.

Authorities say the accident occurred around 11:15 a.m. in Bedford, as Celia C. Rodriguez headed south on Interstate 684 in a 2002 Jeep.

“The operator lost control of the vehicle for an unknown reason, it turned on its side, and struck a tree,” officials say, adding that the Jeep was in the left lane.

Troopers from the Somers barracks responded. A Stat Flight helicopter transported Rodriguez—who was in critical condition, with reported head trauma and chest injuries—to Westchester Medical Center.

Two boys, 2 and 15, were also in the vehicle. They were taken to the same hospital by Katonah/Bedford Hills EMS. Officials did not provide details on their conditions.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call them at 914-277-3651.

I'm waiting for a call back from the hospital regarding an update on Rodriguez's condition. Here's what Patch initially reported yesterday afternoon: "A helicopter landed on I-684 on Sunday after what appeared to be a white SUV overturned heading south near Exit 5 in Bedford. NY State Police from the Somers barracks, who are handling the case, would not confirm the number of passengers involved in the accident or details about the injuries. Traffic was slowed near the exit for approximately two hours until the accident was cleared around 1 p.m."

I spoke to David Billig, director of media relations for Westchester Medical Center, a bit before 3 p.m. At that time, Rodriguez was still in critical condition.
