BIDDEFORD - A North Berwick woman was injured today on the Maine Turnpike when her SUV struck the median guardrail just south of the Old Alfred Road overpass in Biddeford.
The crash occurred around 7:15 a.m. as the southbound 2017 Mazda SUV crossed all three lanes of traffic before going off the roadway and into the woods rolling over several times before landing on its roof.
The driver, 29-year-old Lindsey Fortin, was trapped inside the vehicle before being rescued by MSP Cpl. Doug Cropper of Troop G, who was able to break the driver's side window, cut through the airbag curtain and extricate Fortin.
She was transported to Maine Medical in Portland by Biddeford Rescue with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.
The Biddeford Police Department also assisted at the scene.
