The victim, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. 

The southbound lanes of interstate 15 were shut down to facilitate a medical helicopter.  One lane remained closed for much of Sunday evening as authorities continued to investigate and clear the roadway of debris.

The victim was transported by air to Dixie regional medical center in St. George where, according to a Utah Highway Patrol spokesman,  she is listed in critical condition.
