McCollum is in critical condition. Police say she drove off Route 55 in Pittsgrove Township in New Jersey on Monday night, hit a tree, spun the car and hit two more before ending up on an embankment. Fox News reports New Jersey State Police say McCollum appeared to be driving too fast for the wet roads.
