A Hardeeville woman remains in critical condition following a three-vehicle wreck on U.S. 278 in Bluffton last week, according to a hospital spokesman.
Patricia Grant, 66, was airlifted to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah with life-threatening injuries after she was involved in a collision where the highway meets Eagle's Pointe Drive, according to a Bluffton Police Department report.
John Crowl, 76, of Hilton Head Island was traveling eastbound in a 2010 Cadillac about 5:30 p.m. when traffic slowed and he struck a 1993 Ford pickup truck, the report said.
The Cadillac spun and struck Grant's 2006 Mercedes Benz, which also spun and came to rest in the embankment, the report said.

Police determined John Crowl was following the Ford too closely. He was traveling 65 mph, 10 miles over the speed limit, the report said.
EMS had to extricate Grant, Crowl and his two passengers -- 76-year-old Judith Crowl of Hilton Head Island and 68-year-old Nedra Williams of Arizona.
All occupants of John Crowl's car and the driver of the Ford, Edgardo Ramirez Paz, 47, of Savannah, were transported by ambualnce to area hospitals.
Their conditions were not available Tuesday, though their injuries were not considered life-threatening.
