A Jeep driven by a Skowhegan woman hit a utility pole and several trees along Route 26, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
Alcohol was a factor in a single-vehicle crash on Route 26 in New Gloucester early Sunday that sent two people to the hospital, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash happened shortly after 1 a.m. when a white 2011 Jeep Patriot driven by Tia White, 26, of Skowhegan was traveling south near 49 Maine St.
The Jeep crossed the centerline and left the road, striking a utility pole and several trees, Capt. Craig Smith said in a written statement.
White suffered minor injuries and was transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment, as was her passenger, Levi Rajaniemi, 27, of Rumford, who had serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Smith said.
No charges had been filed in connection with the incident as of Sunday afternoon, according to Smith.
The Jeep was totaled and Route 26 was reduced to one travel lane for several hours.
Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters from Gray and New Gloucester responded to the scene.
