A Waldoboro woman was taken to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus after an SUV rollover on Manktown Road in Waldoboro the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 4.
Susan Overlock was driving a Ford Edge west on Manktown Road, toward Route 235, when the vehicle crossed the centerline, left the road on the opposite side, and knocked down a utility pole before coming to rest on its side against several trees, according to Waldoboro Police Chief John Lash. Overlock’s age and town of residence were not available at the scene. She was the only person in the vehicle.
Lash said the cause of the accident is unknown.
The utility pole came down in the middle of the road. Central Maine Power Co. responded to clear access to the scene for an ambulance and remove the pole and wires. A tow truck removed the vehicle.
Firefighters accessed the scene from the opposite side, traveling to Manktown Road via Route 235 to avoid the utility lines cutting off access from Route 1. The scene was in the area of 600 Manktown Road.
Manktown Road was closed in the vicinity of the crash, with westbound traffic blocked at Miller Road while debris and utility lines were removed from the scene.
Lincoln County Communications dispatched the Waldoboro Fire Department shortly before 1:30 p.m. Waldoboro Emergency Medical Services, the Waldoboro Police Department, and the Warren Fire Department also responded.
