FREEPORT — A Freeport woman faces charges of elevated aggravated assault, drunk driving and drug possession after a serious crash on Durham Road Thursday at 5 p.m.

Susan Muniak, 45, was arrested after being treated and released from Parkview Hospital in Brunswick. Muniak was driving a 2002 Mercury Sable north on the road, which is also Route 136, when she crossed the center line, said Freeport police Sgt. John Perrino.

The car collided with a 1993 Toyota Corolla driven by Wayne Ross, 56, of Cumberland, Perrino said. Ross had to be extricated from the wreckage of the car and was taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Maine Medical Center with injuries to his arms and chest.

The passenger in Ross' car, Margaret Smith, 53, was taken by ambulance to Maine Medical Center with a head injury, Perrino said. Ross and Smith are in satisfactory condition.

Muniak also was charged with possession of drugs and violating bail conditions.

The crash shut down Durham Road for some time as rescue workers treated the injured and police reconstructed the crash.
