NEW VINEYARD — A North Anson woman suffered minor injuries Friday morning when the car she was driving south on Route 27 drifted off the road and rolled over near Ramsdell Road, Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said.

Franklin County Detective Kenneth Charles broke the rear window of the car, which had rolled onto its roof, to get driver Brenda Bryson, 62, of North Anson, out of it.

NorthStar EMS personnel walked Bryson to a nearby ambulance.

The driver suffered “minor injuries” but still was taken by ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington, Nichols said..

Deputy Keith Madore said that “alcohol consumption/intoxication was a factor for the crash,” Nichols said.

The case is still under investigation and charges are pending against the driver, he said.

According to a dispatcher, the accident was reported at 10:38 a.m.

Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Steve Lowell; Lt. David St. Laurent; Deputy Brad Scovil; Maine State Police Sgt. Jeff Mills, of the Commercial Enforcement Unit; and Trooper Jed Malcore responded to a report of the accident, along with the Farmington and New Vineyard fire departments.
