Lt. Gary Hutcheson said a Pontiac Sunfire operated by 27-year-old Stephanie Fitzgerald of South Portland was attempting to pass a Pontiac sports utility vehicle driven by 21-year-old Nathan Butler of Windham when her car hit his vehicle in the rear bumper and flipped over.

Hutcheson said Fitzgerald was given a blood alcohol test but has not been charged. Firefighters had to pull her out of her car.

Fitzgerald was transported by ambulance to Maine Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Butler was not hurt

The crash occurred around 4:30 p.m. Hutcheson said traffic was detoured onto side streets.
