ELLSWORTH — A 51-year-old woman from Harrington was taken to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center on Monday afternoon after the vehicle she was driving “went airborne and then tumbled end over end until she struck a tree,” said Ellsworth Police Department Sgt. Chad Wilmot in an email.
Edna Curtis was heading south on the Bangor Road in a 2007 Jeep Compass around 3:30 p.m. when the vehicle went airborne and hit a tree. The vehicle landed resting on its front bumper standing up against the tree.
Curtis suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Wilmot said. He said speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
Traffic was down to one lane “for a bit” near the crash scene, which was in the area between 1A Relics and Air & Water Quality, Wilmot said.
The Ellsworth police and fire departments and Northern Light Medical Transport responded to the scene.
