FALMOUTH, Maine — A local woman hit a concrete barrier at a tollbooth Monday afternoon, flipping her vehicle upside-down but escaping with only minor injuries, WGME TV13 reports.

Nancy Lightbody of Falmouth said she is used to driving a standard vehicle, and accidentally stomped on the gas thinking she was down-shifting. She rammed into the barrier, and flipped her Honda CR-V into the opposite tollbooth, stopping between them.

The CR-V is in rough shape, but Lightbody suffered only minor cuts and scrapes. The toll-taker wasn’t hurt. Traffic was only moderately affected. There is no word of any charges in the incident.
