NEWFIELD – A Newfield woman had to be flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland on Tuesday after her car was struck head-on by a pickup truck.

William L. King Jr., Chief Deputy of the York County Sheriff’s Office, said the victim, 20-year-old Emily Mee, was driving a 2003 Dodge Neon on Water Street in Newfield when a 2004 Ford F250 heading in the opposite direction crossed the center line and hit Mee’s car head-on.

King said pickup truck driver, Steven Boivin, 53, of Waterboro, told police he bent over to pick up his cell phone just before the crash.

Mee was trapped in her car for about 20 minutes. The Newfield Fire Department was able to extricate her from the wreckage before she was placed on the helicopter, which had to land at the Line School athletic field.

Mee was listed in satisfactory condition Tuesday night by a spokeswoman for the Portland hospital.

King said the crash remains under investigation and that he anticipates charges being filed against Boivin. The crash took place around 3:55 p.m.
