Ejected driver remains in critical condition after I-90 crash



















LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. - A 20-year-old woman who rolled her car Monday night on I-90 is reported to be in critical condition at an area hospital.

Jessica Derosie was heading east on I-90 near Liberty Lake just before 9:30 p.m. when she lost control of her car at speeds of around 100 miles per hour, according to Washington State Patrol.

Derosie drove into the median before striking a cable barrier which caused her car to roll several times, ejecting her from the car in the process.

Derosie was transported to Sacred Heart by MedStar.  As of 10:00 Tuesday evening, a nursing supervisor at the hospital says Derosie remains listed in critical condition.

The crash was caused by a combination of excessive speed and inexperience, according to WSP.


It does not appear Derosie was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
