THOMASTON — A woman was taken to the hospital Saturday evening after she was pinned under a car in the parking lot behind the town business block.

Thomaston Police Chief Tim Hoppe said Nov. 20 that a woman had stopped her car in the parking lot and got out and opened the hood. The car had apparently not been put in park and the vehicle rolled forward and dragged the woman, the chief said.

The Rockland Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services responded to assist Thomaston with air bags that were inflated to raise the vehicle, the chief said. South Thomaston also sent a medic.

A LifeFlight helicopter was called to meet the ambulance at Pen Bay Medical Center. The chief said he was told the injuries were not life threatening. The woman was in her 60s.
