WINTHROP — A Massachusetts woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash that was reported at 11:49 a.m. Saturday on U.S. Route 202 and Old Village Road.

Barbara Ocnos, 45, of Southborough, Mass., was taken by Winthrop Ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with what were described as non life-threatening injuries, according to Winthrop Police Officer Paul Ferland.

Ferland said Ocnos was driving a 2008 Jeep Patriot east on U.S. Route 202 when Jean Wave, 85, of East Winthrop, pulled out from Old Village Road to cross the road and continue on South Road.

“The driver failed to see the eastbound vehicle, striking it on the driver’s side,” Ferland said. “The eastbound vehicle rolled over and came back to rest on its wheels.”

Rescuers had to cut off the driver’s door of the Jeep to remove Ocnos, he said, adding that Wave was not injured.

The crash slowed traffic along U.S. 202 for about 45 minutes.

Winthrop police, fire and ambulance crews responded.

The Jeep was destroyed in the crash and Wave’s vehicle, a 2001 Buick Park Avenue sustained front end damage, Ferland said.
