LEBANON – A woman who was hit twice by a vehicle was taken to Frisbie Memorial Hospital with injuries that were described as non-life-threatening, a rescue team official said.
Jason Cole, the Assistant Chief of Lebanon Rescue, said the woman, described as in her 20s and from Rochester, N.H., was injured around 3:20 p.m. Friday on Flat Rock Bridge Road near the Flat Rock Bridge Family Camping Resort.
Cole said the woman was hit twice by a vehicle and that the vehicle left the area.
Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said state police have determined that a hit-and-run took place, but "we have a lot of questions about the circumstances."
Witnesses said a second woman, also in her 20s, was injured in the incident, but she left before police and rescue crews arrived, McCausland said.
The woman who was hospitalized has injuries to her legs, he said.
