Woman thrown from vehicle after rollover crash

By Stephen Betts | Nov 16, 2019

Thomaston — A 53-year-old  woman was seriously injured Friday night after she was ejected from her vehicle that rolled over multiple times in Thomaston.

The crash is believed to be both alcohol and speed related, Thomaston Police Chief Tim Hoppe said Saturday morning, Nov. 16.

The woman -- Kandie Towne of Nobleboro -- was taken by Thomaston ambulance to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport after a LifeFlight helicopter in Bangor was unable to fly due to snowy conditions.

The crash occurred shortly after 8 p.m.

The chief said the investigation continues but that it appears the woman went to Wal-Mart to meet her ex-husband who works there. There is a protection from abuse order against the husband and the two were not suppose to have contact with each other.

The woman left Wal-Mart and was following her ex-husband who was in another vehicle traveling on Buttermilk Lane, the chief said. Her vehicle went into a ditch, then back onto the road where it rolled at least three times. She was ejected through the driver's side window and landed in the middle of the road.

The woman was in good condition, the chief said Monday, Nov. 18.

I would have worded it as "Ejected during the accident".  Hard to be thrown after the accident.   Just sayin'  -sm
