NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine — A local woman was injured after the car she was driving hit a patch of ice and rolled onto its roof on Thursday morning, police said.
The Somerset County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a single-vehicle rollover on the Winding Hill Road at 8:30 a.m., Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi II said in a statement.
Ashley Jones, 18, or Norridgewock was traveling east in her white 2004 Mazda when she hit a patch of ice, causing the vehicle to slide into a guardrail, said Gottardi.
“Once the vehicle struck the guardrail, the vehicle flipped over onto its roof and landed in the roadway,” he said.
Jones suffered cuts on her head and arm, said Gottardi. She was taken to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan for a possible head injury. She was released from the hospital later in the day.
“The Mazda was totaled in the accident and approximately 25-30 feet of the struck guardrail was damaged,” Gottardi said.
Cpl. Ritchie Putnam responded to the scene and investigated the crash.
