She was taken by ambulance and two life flights to get to St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings, Montana.

Due to being in Montana at the time of her accident, Willis’s family insurance policy is stating the coverage is ‘out of network.’

A Go Fund Me page is live to offset the medical costs to the family, and they are hoping the community can come together to help during this difficult time.

Before her accident, Willis took first place in the qualifiers on March 22 in Big Sky.
