A 49-year-old woman was in critical condition Tuesday after crashing her car into a boulder in Copperopolis.
Valerie Jean Maschal, of Copperopolis, was driving a 2009 Ford Mustang north on Little John Road at an unknown speed around 9:15 a.m. when she entered the dirt shoulder north of Quiver Street and crashed into a boulder, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The vehicle bounced back into the northbound lane and came to a rest on its hood.
Maschal, who was wearing a seat belt, was flown to Modesto Memorial Hospital with major injuries.
The collision was still under investigation Tuesday.
