SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A rollover crash shut down northbound Interstate 71 for about two hours Tuesday morning.

A woman's 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt flipped when a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica hit it as she she tried to change up to three lanes at the same time, said Michael Robison, spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

AirCare landed on the northbound side of I-71 and flew Amanda Baird, 29, of Cleves to  University of Cincinnati Medical Center. 

She was not wearing a seatbelt. She was conscious at the scene and is expected to recover, though she has serious injuries, Robison said.

The crash remains under investigation. Speed, drugs and alcohol are not factors. 

The other motorist, James Fields, 36, of Cincinnati, was not hurt.
