TOWNSHIP 7, RANGE 5, Maine — A mother traveling with her three children suffered minor injuries Thursday afternoon when the vehicle in which they were traveling slid off Route 11 five miles north of Knowles Corner.

According to information released late Thursday afternoon by Aroostook County Chief Deputy Sheriff Darrell Crandall, Kimberly Hutchins, 45, of Lewiston was traveling north in her 2003 Dodge Caravan when she lost control of the vehicle and slid off the road.

The van rolled over twice before hitting a tree and coming to rest on its wheels.

Hutchins and one of her children, no name or age provided, were taken by Ashland Ambulance to Houlton Regional Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to Crandall.

The other two children were uninjured and the van is believed to be a total loss.

The accident was invested by Deputy Sheriff Kris Malmborg, who was assisted by Troopers Shawn Whalen and Jacob Ferland of the Maine State Police. The Ashland Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
