The Gloucester woman airlifted from a serious car crash on Route 128 on Thursday remains hospitalized tonight at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
But hospital officials told the Times that Aimee Shea, 27, listed as being of 77 Friend St., has been listed in good condition as of 4 p.m. Officials have declined to elaborate on the nature of her injuries, except to say that they are “non life-threatening.”
Shea was the driver who crashed her sedan into a guardrail just before Exit 14 on the northbound lane of Route 128 yesterday at 12:40 p.m.
It took firefighters two hours to cut Shea out of her car before Dartmouth-Hitchcock Air Ambulance flew her to Tufts after landing in the northbound lanes of the highway.
Massachusetts State Police, who are conducting the investigation, said Thursday that Shea will be charged with driving under the influence of drugs and driving with a suspended license.
