JEFFERSON COUNTY, N.Y. -- A serious crash had parts of Interstate 81 south shutdown just north of Watertown Monday afternoon. State Police say a minivan rolled over between exits 48A and 48 around 2:15 p.m.

According to investigators, a tire failed, causing it to come off. The vehicle flipped over and landed on the roof.

Rescuers had to remove the driver from the van. Valerie Lyness, 52, from Farmington, suffered a severe cut and was airlifted to a Vermont hospital due to the weather in Central New York at the time. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
