DRACUT -- While police continue to investigate a single-car crash Monday afternoon that left a 69-year-old Dracut woman in critical condition, they have identified the victim as Dottie Berrios, a retired victim-witness advocate with the Middlesex District Attorney's Office.
Police say they received a report at 5:32 p.m. for a car that drove off the road that had struck a tree on Parker Road. Berrios had just turned onto Parker Road from Wheeler Road, when she may have had a medical incident.
Berrios was first transported to Lowell General Hospital Saints Campus, then flown via medical helicopter to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston in critical condition.
As of Wednesday, Dracut Deputy Police Chief David Chartand said his department has not received any updates from the hospital that indicate a change in Berrios' condition.
Berrios retired from the District Attorney's Office in 2011, after nearly two decades as an advocate, so she could help her ailing daughter, Angie, through the process of a liver transplant.
