RICHMOND

Firefighters rushed to cut a driver from a car that crashed into trees along Interstate 295 northbound in Richmond, just prior to the Alexander Reed Road overpass, Thursday night.

The driver, 49 year old Terri Sebring of Brooks, was freed after a lengthy extrication by Richmond and Bowdoinham firefighters. She was transported to Central Maine Medical Center with serious injuries that didn’t appear life-threatening. 

Maine State Trooper Greg Stevens said there was also a young dog in the Toyota Corolla which was fine after the crash, reported at approximately 7:30 p.m.

Stevens said Sebring was traveling north and drove off the road. The car spun around and ended up in trees on its side in the median.

Firefighters had to cut trees out of the way to access the car and then cut door posts, remove windows and peel the roof back far enough to get Sebring out. 

Traffic was reduced to one lane near the crash.

Stevens said the crash remains under investigation.
