FALMOUTH — A woman was injured on Interstate 295 Thursday morning after a tractor-trailer hit her car and sent it into the median, where it rolled over, state police said.

The woman, Kathleen Pride, 18, of Scarborough, complained of neck pain following the collision and was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland to be examined, police said.

The crash occurred about 9:15 a.m. near mile marker 10 northbound, police said.

Police said a tractor-trailer carrying wood chips and driven by Charlie Judkins, 52, of Skowhegan, was moving into the passing lane when it tapped the rear of Pride's car, sending it into the median, where it rolled over.

One lane of the interstate was closed for about 90 minutes, police said, but traffic was flowing again by about 10:45 a.m.

Pride's car, a 2006 Ford Taurus, was destroyed, police said, while Judkins' truck received minor damage.

No charges are expected to be filed, police said.
