CARMEL, Maine — An Athens woman crashed her Ford Mustang after hydroplaning off Interstate 95 late Wednesday morning, according to Maine State Police.
A spokeswoman for Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor said Charlotte Langlois, 22, was in good condition on Wednesday afternoon.
Langlois was traveling north on I-95 in heavy rain near mile marker 174 just before the Newburgh exit at 11:45 a.m. when her yellow 2003 Ford Mustang left the road, spun once and backed into trees lining the ditch on the right-hand side, according to Trooper Trevor Snow.
“She had just passed another vehicle when she hydroplaned,” said Snow. “She came to rest facing southbound against a clump of trees.”
Snow said Langlois was the only occupant in the vehicle.
“She was driving too fast for the conditions, obviously,” said Snow, adding that the vehicle had substantial damage.
Snow said Langlois complained of pain and was transported by Capital Ambulance to EMMC. The Newburgh and Carmel fire departments assisted Snow at the scene.
