FRANKLIN, Maine — A local woman remained in critical condition Tuesday at a Bangor hospital after suffering injuries in a Friday car crash on Route 200.

Elizabeth Miller, 26, was listed in critical condition at Eastern Maine Medical Center the day after the crash. A hospital spokesman confirmed on Tuesday that her status at EMMC has not changed.

According to Maine State Police, a homeowner on Route 200 called 911 shortly after 9 p.m. on Friday to report that a vehicle heading east on the highway had rolled over and crashed on the side of the road. Miller, the sole occupant of the 2010 Subaru, was unresponsive and had a weak pulse when emergency responders pulled her from the car, state police indicated in a prepared statement released Saturday. She was not wearing a seat belt when the car went off the road, they indicated.

“As she approached a corner at the top of a hill, she drifted off the right side of the road and into a snow covered ditch,” police wrote in the statement. “She then vaulted up onto a private driveway and back down into another ditch which cause the vehicle to roll over onto its roof.”

Miller was taken from the accident scene to EMMC by LifeFlight helicopter.

Police indicated at the time that troopers were investigating whether speed or alcohol consumption may have been factors in the accident. Additional information about the investigation was not available Tuesday evening.
