A Washington County woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries Monday after her Jeep went end-over-end and landed on its front bumper off Bangor Road, also Route 1A, in Ellsworth.
The 2007 Jeep Compass came to rest in this extraordinary position — with its roof against the side of a very thick tree — after Edna Curtis, 51, of Harrington went off the southbound side of the road and went airborne at about 3:15 p.m., Ellsworth police said in a statement Tuesday.
Ellsworth firefighters extricated Curtis from the Jeep and Capital Ambulance took her to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, police said.
Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, police said.
The crash forced police to close the road down to one lane for a time, police said.
