“We have spoken with the other driver involved,” the post said. “No charges have been brought at this time.”

Detective Steven Shisler, who is investigating the incident, said in an email Thursday night that the woman is still hospitalized.

“Nothing life-threatening, but it will be a long road to recovery,” Shisler said.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has additional information, such as video or photos, is asked to contact Shisler at 207-698-1136, option 1 or
