Teen uninjured after vehicle rolls over

ELLSWORTH — A teenage driver was uninjured after the vehicle she was driving went off a snow-covered road and rolled onto its roof Monday morning.

According to a police report, 16-year-old Shayna M. Jester was heading south on Mariaville Road shortly after 7 a.m. when she lost control of her vehicle while heading up a hill.

A witness told police Jester had accelerated when heading up the hill and lost control of the Suzuki sport utility vehicle she was driving.

The vehicle went off the right-hand side of the road, hit a snowbank and flipped onto its roof.

Jester, who was wearing her seat belt, was not injured in the crash. The SUV had to be towed due to disabling damage.

Police said the road surface condition was a contributing factor in the crash, and that Jester was driving too fast for the conditions.
