The Albert Lea woman who suffered life-threatening injuries in the fatal Jan. 10 crash west of Oakland was listed in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.

Elaine Penny Lieb was injured in the rollover crash that killed William Arthur Studer, the driver of the vehicle she was a passenger in.

Studer was driving a 2002 blue Honda CR-V west on Interstate 90 when he reportedly suffered an unknown medical condition, drove off the interstate and into the right ditch, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The vehicle continued through a farm field, making a loop before vaulting over Freeborn County Road 46, rolling multiple times and ejecting Lieb, the report states.
