Stonington woman fractures arms in accident

SEDGWICK, Maine — Charges could be filed in connection with a motor vehicle accident in which a Stonington woman broke both her arms, police said Monday.

Whether charges are filed depends on the results of blood-alcohol tests, according to Chief Deputy Richard Bishop of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department.

The accident happened Friday a few minutes before 11 p.m. on Route 15 in Sedgwick, according to a police summary written by Deputy Ben Astbury.

Torrie Trundy, 26, was driving a 2006 Honda four-door car south on Route 15 toward Deer Isle when a deer ran into the roadway.

Trundy lost control of the car, which spun 360 degrees and went off the road into the ditch on the opposite side of the highway, striking several rocks and trees, according to the police summary.

Trundy fractured both of her arms in the accident and was taken first to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital before being transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor for surgery, Astbury wrote in the report. A passenger in the car, Ben Haskell, 22, of Deer Isle, sustained minor cuts and abrasions but refused treatment from medical responders at the accident scene.

The Honda was demolished in the accident, police indicated.

Bishop said he was not sure if Trundy was still in the hospital Monday. A spokesman at EMMC said Monday that the hospital had no information about Trundy.
