One taken to hospital after single car rollover

AUGUSTA — One person was taken to the hospital following a single-vehicle crash early Sunday on Interstate 95 in north Augusta.

Maine State Trooper John Lacoste said four members of a Bangor family were returning from participating in a Relay for Life in Windham when Scott Bouchard, 43, of Bangor, apparently fell asleep at the wheel and the vehicle went off the road, rolling three times and ending up on its roof in the median between the guardrail and a second, wire guardrail.

His daughter, a passenger, was taken to the hospital complaining of head and neck pain.

Lacoste said the driver was lucky and everyone in the KIA sport utility vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.

The vehicle was destroyed, he said.
