GRAY, Maine — Early morning snow showers surprised some Maine motorists who found themselves skidding off the slick roads during the morning commute.

In Gray, a Winthrop woman walked away unhurt Thursday after her car rolled over onto its roof on the Maine Turnpike.

State police told WMTW-TV that Catherine Emery was passing another car when she lost control of her car in the slush, hit a guardrail and spun around before flipping over.

Several other vehicles also went off the road, but no injuries were reported.
