Anita Ward was driving a black Cadillac Escalade when the accident happened around 1 p.m. Sunday.

Winslow Fire Department Capt. Joseph Gravel said Ward indicated she had veered off to avoid another car coming into her lane.

"I don't know exactly what happened, all I know is that her car appears to have gone off the road," said Linda Smedberg, a Winslow police officer who also responded to the accident.

A nursing supervisor at Inland Hospital said Ward was in stable condition Sunday night.
