PITTSFIELD — No information was available Sunday about the condition of a woman who was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center on Saturday following a single-car crash on Interstate 95.

Amanda King, 38, was driving northbound on the highway when her 2008 Subaru station wagon left the road, crossed into the median and struck several trees, according to Trooper Aaron Turcotte of the Maine State Police.

The accident was reported at 8:42 p.m. and occured around mile 151 on the interstate.

King, who was wearing a seatbelt, was taken to Sebasticook Valley Health in Pittsfield, then flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor for treatment of serious injuries, said Turcotte.

She was the only person in the car, which caught fire in the engine compartment following the accident, he said. The fire was extinguished by the Pittsfield Fire Department before spreading to the rest of the vehicle.

The accident is still under investigation but it does not appear that speed or alcohol were a factor, said Turcotte.
