PALMYRA, Maine — A Pittsfield woman was hurt Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 95.

Kathyanne Mollet, 51, told Maine State Police Trooper Jeff Beach that as she was southbound in the travel lane, she thought a vehicle in the passing lane was veering into her path.

“It appears she overcorrected,” Beach said. This caused her 2002 Jeep Wrangler to enter into the median at mile marker 155. It rolled over twice. Mollet was wearing a seat belt and her injuries were not considered life-threatening, Beach said.

The trooper said the Jeep was demolished.

An off-duty Ellsworth firefighter-emergency medical technician, Casey Bunker, 23, stopped and provided first aid until Sebasticook Valley Ambulance could arrive. Beach also was assisted by Newport Fire-Rescue.
