Maine State Police, wardens and two ambulances responded to Westbrook Street in South Thomaston Sunday afternoon, May 8, after an all-terrain vehicle hit a tree.

According to State Trooper Scott Quintero, Jessica Firth, 26, of South Thomaston was operating a Kawasaki Mule four-wheel ATV with two children, 6 and 9 years old, as passengers. They were approximately one-quarter mile along a woods road behind Firth Salvage when the vehicle hit a tree. A witness said Firth drove the vehicle out of the woods and one of the children alerted people at the salvage yard.

Firth was transported by South Thomaston Ambulance to Penobscot Bay Medical Center. The children were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Rockland Emergency Medical Services and Maine Warden Mark Merrifield also responded to the call.
