WISCASSET —  Kristin Crowley, 35, of Wiscasset was arrested late Saturday after allegedly crashing her car into the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office building.

Crowley allegedly failed to stop at a red light on Gardiner Road and drove straight through the intersection and into the sheriff’s office building, according to a Wiscasset Police Department news release.

Crowley allegedly left the crash scene on foot before police arrived. An officer found her walking about 1.7 miles away on Route 218 near the West Alna Road intersection.

Crowley was taken to Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta where she was treated and released. From there, she was taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset where she was charged with operating under the influence, aggravated criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident and violating conditions of release.
