BANGOR, Maine — A Hermon woman lost control of her SUV Tuesday morning, slowing traffic at a busy city intersection.
Rosalie Sullivan, 29, was heading onto Interstate 95 southbound from the eastbound lanes of Interstate 395 when she rolled off the on-ramp, state police Trooper Trevor Snow said.
Snow said Sullivan hit some ice and snow at the end of the ramp and her vehicle subsequently rolled onto its roof. Sullivan was wearing a seat belt, likely preventing serious injury.
Police and Bangor firefighters were dispatched to the scene shortly before 9 a.m. The accident backed up traffic on I-95 for hours, and Exit 1A off I-395 southbound was closed while crews cleaned up the scene.
Sullivan suffered cuts and was transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment, Snow said. He added that the accident is another reminder that motorists should use caution on slippery ramps and roads.
