LAGRANGE, Maine — Speed and road conditions were factors in a Monday afternoon accident that sent an Orneville woman to the hospital, police said Tuesday.

Angelic Bubar, 37, was traveling too fast on a slushy Medford Road when she failed to negotiate a turn, struck a barrier and flipped over, said Deputy Steve Saucier of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

Angelic’s husband Richard, 36, and Ralph Storer, 29, of Bradford were passengers in the car, according to Saucier.

Saucier said the barriers along the side of the road prevented Bubar’s vehicle from plunging into a nearby brook.

Angelic Bubar and Storer were not wearing seat belts but were not ejected from the car, the deputy said. Bubar had a cut on her head and back pain and was treated at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Richard Bubar and Storer did not require a hospital trip, Saucier said. Angelic Bubar’s vehicle was demolished in the crash.
