A 63-year-old woman was airlifted to a Winchester hospital Sunday after her Toyota Camry veered off Harry Byrd Highway, struck some trees and rolled over, Loudoun County authorities said.

The woman -- from Stephenson, Va. -- was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, said Kraig Troxell, spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office.
