ROCK HILL, S.C. -- One person was airlifted from the scene of a two-vehicle crash on I-77 at the Rock Hill exit Tuesday afternoon.

One lane of I-77 South was shut down while emergency crews worked to clear the scene and transport a victim to the hospital.

South Carolina State Highway Patrol says a Florida man driving an RV improperly changed lanes, forcing 55-year-old Dena Henning, of Rock Hill, to go off the right side of the roadway, down an embankment and into a wooded area.

Henning was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for treatment of her injuries.

Both passengers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash, SCHP says. Donald Townley, the driver of the RV, was not injured, but was cited for improper lane change.

The scene was cleared before 5 p.m. Tuesday.
