NORWAY, Maine — A local woman was charged with operating under the influence late Friday night after driving her car off the road with her two children inside.

Sarah Timm, 36, drove her 2003 Volkswagen Jetta off the road and into a tree on Crockett Ridge Road in Norway, officer James Ventresca said. Witnesses reported Timm’s vehicle driving erratically shortly before the 10:30 p.m. crash, he said.

Ventresca said Timm’s children — ages 7 and 9 — were in the vehicle with her at the time of the crash. He said Timm was northbound on Crockett Ridge Road heading home from the Waterford area.

No one was injured in the crash. Timm was taken to the Oxford County Jail and the children were turned over to their father.

Timm is a third-grade teacher at Agnes Gray Elementary School in West Paris, according to the Oxford Hills School District website.
