MONMOUTH—A Lewiston woman was hurt Friday when her car overturned on Norris Hill Road.

Beverly Girouard, 74, was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with what were believed to be non life-threatening injuries, said Monmouth Police Chief Kevin Mulherin.

“We’re assuming it was some sort of medical emergency,” Mulherin said. “She said she was going from Auburn to Lewiston. She didn’t know she was in Monmouth.”

Girouard, who was wearing a seat belt, was conscious and alert when police and rescuers arrived.

The crash occurred shortly before 3 p.m., as Girouard veered left U.S. Route 202 and drove her 2001 Mercury Sable over an island as she veered onto Norris Hill Road.

“That’s where she lost control,” Mulherin said. “She actually went off the road twice before rolling her car.”

The Sable came to rest on its wheels in a ditch several hundred feet east of Route 202. Girouard had to be cut from the car, Mulherin said.

“She was very lucky,” he said.

Girouard’s car was totaled.

There are no charges connected to the crash.
