A WOOLGOOLGA woman remains in a critical condition in hospital, three days after a serious head-on collision at Halfway Creek.

According to police, the 58-year-old was placed in an induced coma following Sunday's crash on the Pacific Highway, and this morning was listed as being in a critical but stable condition.
