COLUMBIA, Maine — A Milbridge woman suffered serious injuries Friday morning in a two-car crash at Columbia’s Four Corners intersection on U.S. Route 1.

Sarah Snider, 25, was ejected from her 1995 Ford SUV, according to Washington County Deputy Keith York, after she apparently pulled onto the highway from a gas station and was struck by an approaching car.

James Mills, 39, of Lubec, was headed north on Route 1, York said, and was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.

β€œHe tried to stop but she pulled out right in front of him,’” York said.

Mills was wearing a seat belt and was shaken up but uninjured. Snider was not wearing a seat belt.

Snider was taken by Pleasant River Ambulance to Down East Community Hospital in Machias. York said her injuries, although serious, were not considered life-threatening.

York said he was assisted at the scene by Columbia Fire Department, several other deputies and many bystanders.

No charges were filed Friday, York said, but the crash remains under investigation. printed on April 27, 2017
