BOWDOIN — A woman walking along Doughty Road in Bowdoin was airlifted to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston after a driver struck her Friday night.

The crash was reported at  7 p.m.

According to the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office, 41-year-old Raquel Lee of Bowdoin was walking on Doughty Road prior to the crash.

Chief Deputy Brett Strout said a 2004 Honda Pilot driven by Pauline Cloutier, 36, of Bowdoin struck Lee. Cloutier was headed west on Doughty Road toward Meadow Road.

Lisbon Emergency and Bowdoin EMS personnel treated the woman before a helicopter took her to a Lewiston hospital. Strout said as of Saturday morning she was in stable condition.

A call to CMMC for an update on Lee’s status has not been returned as the marketing and communications office isn’t open until Monday.

“It appears that the setting sun played a role in this crash which is still under investigation,” Strout said. “Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors at this point.”

Any charges, if warranted, are pending the investigation, Strout said.
