KENNEBUNK, Maine — An Arundel woman and two children were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries Monday after the woman’s vehicle was involved in a rollover near a Kennebunk school, police say.

Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee of the Kennebunk Police Department said in a Monday evening announcement that Megan Ogden, 38, was traveling west on Alewive Road near Kennebunk Elementary School just after 3 p.m. when her 2011 Honda Pilot “left the roadway, drove between two trees, struck a rock retaining wall, rolled over and came to rest right-side-up.”

Ogden was able to continue driving the vehicle, leaving the initial crash scene and traveling east on Alewive Road before stopping the car near the entrance of specialty glass and ceramics maker Corning Inc, Bean Burpee said.

Police received reports of two crashes on Alewive Road from concerned witnesses but determined that it was Ogden’s vehicle involved in both reported crashes.

“Following the initial crash and rollover, the Pilot sustained major damage with a shattered windshield, front and side airbag deployment, and several flat tires,” Bean Burpee wrote, in part. “Ogden sustained a broken nose and outside visible cuts and lacerations. In the car with Ogden at the time of the crash were two children, ages 7 and 9, who also sustained visible cuts and lacerations.”

All three individuals were taken by rescuers to Southern Maine Medical Center for injuries not considered life-threatening. Bean Burpee said both children were properly secured in booster seats at the time of the crash, and no criminal charges had been filed as of Monday evening.
