The car traveled another 150 feet before coming to rest in front of a house, deputies say. She was taken by helicopter to Upstate Medical University for treatment of unspecified injuries. She was listed in fair condition Thursday morning. A passenger, 19 year old Lucinda Branch, also of Watertown, was treated at the scene and refused further medical attention.
