A New Hampshire woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries when, possibly as the result of a medical issue, her car crashed into the sign for the Wiscasset municipal building Friday, July 13.
Sherrill Crow, 76, was driving a Chevrolet Impala south on Route 1 at the time of the accident, according to Wiscasset Police Sgt. Craig Worster.
The vehicle left the road and struck a speed limit sign and one of the brick pillars for the municipal building’s sign at “a high rate of speed” before coming to a stop, Worster said. The impact demolished the brick pillar and the speed limit sign impaled the sign for the municipal building.
Crow was wearing her seat belt and the vehicle’s airbags deployed, Worster said. The Wiscasset Ambulance Service treated Crow and transported her to a hospital. She was the vehicle’s only occupant.
Worster said he believes the driver had a medical event, which caused the crash. The accident is under investigation, but he does not expect any charges.
The Wiscasset Fire Department also responded to the scene.
