METHUEN – The condition of a Chelmsford woman injured in an automobile crash involving a local rock star improved at a Boston hospital yesterday.

Lindsay Taylor, 25, was upgraded to serious condition yesterday, said Jerry Berger, a spokesman for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. Taylor was said to be in a coma and on life support after the crash Wednesday night on Interstate 93 south.

Taylor was sitting in the back seat of a Toyota Camry that was struck from behind by a Hummer H3 driven by Salvatore “Sully” Erna, 38, of Windham, N.H. Erna, a Lawrence native, is the lead singer of the rock band Godsmack. He was not injured in the accident, police said.

The Camry was pushed forward and rear-ended by a Honda Odyssey driven by a Londonderry, N.H., woman.

The crash occurred about 7 p.m. on the ramp leading from I-93 south to Route 213.

The accident remains under investigation by state police. No citations or charges were filed over the weekend, state police said.
