A 27-year-old Perham woman and her 17-month-old child were taken to Northern Light A.R. Gould Hospital in Presque Isle after their car veered off the road and struck a utility pole Friday afternoon.
The car was heading south on U.S. Route 1, when it drifted from the road and struck a utility pole, according to a press release from Maine State Police.
The pole reportedly broke in half and fell onto the top of the vehicle. Emera Maine temporarily shut off power in the area to remove the car from the scene.
The woman and the child were taken to the hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, according to Maine State Police.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
