Franklin woman in critical condition following crash



FRANKLIN — A LifeFlight helicopter flew a critically injured Franklin woman to Eastern Maine Medical Center Friday after a single-vehicle crash on Route 200 in Franklin, the Maine State Police reported.

Elizabeth Miller, 26, remained in critical condition at EMMC on Monday, according to a hospital spokesman. Police said Miller had not been wearing her seat belt.

Miller was driving a 2010 Subaru east on Route 200 when the crash occurred, said police.

The car drifted off the right side of the road and into a snow-covered ditch as the car approached a corner at the top of a hill, police reported. The car vaulted up into a private driveway and back down into another ditch, which caused the car to roll over onto its roof, police said.

Sgt. Carleton Small, Cpl. Chris Smith and Trooper David Barnard handled the scene with help from County Ambulance and the Franklin Fire Department.
