By Diana Bowley, BDN Staff

GREENVILLE, Maine — A Rockland woman who was traveling to Lily Bay State Park for a camping trip was injured Sunday when she lost control of her vehicle and it rolled over on Moosehead Lake Road.

Brenda L. Meklin, 60, had been northbound on the road at about 11:45 a.m. when her vehicle drifted onto the left-hand side of the road and then went into the ditch, Greenville police Officer Everard Hayes said Sunday. The vehicle traveled about 250 feet in the ditch before it rolled over onto its roof and ended up back on the road, he said.

Meklin had to be extricated from the vehicle by Greenville firefighters. Meklin complained of chest pain and pain in her left elbow and was taken by ambulance to C.A. Dean Hospital, Hayes said. She was being evaluated late Sunday afternoon, he said.

A collie in Meklin’s vehicle was not injured in the accident, according to Hayes.

Hayes said Meklin had been following her husband, who was in a vehicle towing a camper ahead of her. The couple had been on their way to the state park where they had planned to camp.

The accident, which demolished Meklin’s 2003 Chevrolet Tracker, is under investigation.
