LYMAN, Maine — Icy road conditions were a major factor in a single-vehicle accident that sent a York County woman to the hospital Monday.

Faith Crosby, 18, of Sanford was traveling eastbound on Route 111 toward Biddeford just before 4 p.m. when she passed a fuel tanker truck and lost control, York County Maj. William King said.

Crosby had to retreat to her lane quickly to avoid oncoming traffic, and spun out on the icy roadway, according to King. Her 2003 Kia went down an embankment and the driver’s-side door hit an oak tree.

Crosby was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Goodall Hospital in Sanford for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening, according to King. Her vehicle was totaled.

The York County Sheriff’s Office handled 24 motor vehicle accidents due to Monday’s winter storm, King said.
