A woman and her 8-year-old daughter escaped serious injury Friday morning after the car they were in slid off an icy road in Rome and rolled over onto its roof, police said.

The single-vehicle crash happened about 7:40 a.m. off Route 225, also called Rome Road, according to Maine State Police Cpl. Diane Vance.

Gypsy Darron, 27, of Rome, was driving a 2003 Chevy sport utility vehicle with her 8-year-old daughter as a passenger, Vance said. As the SUV traveled east on Route 225, a snow squall descended on the area, she said.

Vance said Darron was driving too fast for the snowy conditions — the speed limit is 45 mph on the road — and the SUV slid on ice on a corner. The SUV rolled off the road and stopped on its roof. A passer-by came upon the crash and called 911, Vance said.

Darron and her daughter, who had gotten out of the SUV when Vance arrived, complained of pain and suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. They declined to be taken by ambulance to the hospital and were instead treated by a rescue crew at the scene.

Vance said the SUV sustained reportable damage but was not destroyed, and it was towed from the scene. No charges resulted on the crash, she said.
