WINSLOW — Two local women remained at hospitals Monday afternoon after being injured in a car crash the previous morning on China Road in Winslow.

Bonnie Compagnon, 48, of Fairfield, was listed in serious condition at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, a hospital spokeswoman said.

She had been a passenger in a car driven by Rayola Welch, 68, of Waterville, who was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland. Family members of Welch declined to allow details about her condition to be released, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday.

Erin Bickford, 32, of Winslow, the driver of the other car involved in the crash, was treated and released Sunday from MaineGeneral Medical Center in Waterville, according to Winslow police officer Linda Smedberg.

Bickford told police she lost control of her car, which crossed the centerline and struck Welch’s car head-on shortly after 6 a.m., Smedberg said.

An ambulance took Compagnon to the hospital in Waterville before she was taken by ambulance Sunday to the Portland hospital, Smedberg said.

The crash happened in a 50-mph zone near where Pattee Pond Road connects to China Road, which is also Route 137. The icy road conditions that morning are the suspected cause of the crash, which is still being investigated, Smedberg said.

No tickets were issued and speed, alcohol or other factors are not believed to have played a role in the crash, she said.
