Hit-and-Run Crash on I-95 in Smyrna Sends Woman to Hospital
Maine State Police say a Houlton woman was injured Monday night in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 95.
State Trooper Tim Saucier responded to the crash in Smyrna just after 8 p.m., according to Corp. Chuck Michaud. The investigation revealed that 38-year-old Karen Lewis of Houlton had been driving north on I-95 when a vehicle struck her 2007 Toyota Camry from behind.
The impact forced Lewis’ car off the highway, causing it to crash into several trees. The rear end of the Camry was completely crushed by the force of the impact, Michaud said. The driver of the other vehicle reportedly did not stop, but kept driving north.
Ms. Lewis was transported by Houlton Ambulance to Houlton Regional Hospital with what police called non-life threatening injuries.
State Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the other vehicle and driver involved in the crash. Michaud said the vehicle in question is believed to be a larger vehicle and would have significant front end damage.
Information regarding the crash can be directed to Trooper Tim Saucier at the Maine State Police barracks in Houlton at 532-5400.
